This s’mores hot chocolate is the perfect cold weather treat!
Hey yall! I have two completely opposite things to talk about today. Which really is how I talk about most things in real life. I start on one topic and something pops into my head so I blurt it out so I don’t forget. It drives my husband absolutely insane, but I can’t help it. It’s how my brain works.
The first thing I wanted to talk about is batch processing. I know, I know. It sounds weird and sort of tech-y but it’s not. It just means that I do the same things (processes) all at once. In my case it means I spend one or two days a week cooking and photography recipes.
I will pick a day and cook 2 or 3 recipes at a time. Sometimes they are very similar in nature like this s’mores hot chocolate and the butterbeer latte. Yup. Made and photographed on the same day.
While my food is cooking (or coffee brewing), I set up my photo area for pictures. I grab my plates, linens and silverware for each setup. And yes, I do have a big stash of all of those things just for food photography.
I’ll let things cool and garnish them or add whipped cream and then I crank out all the pictures. I have a giant window in my dining room that let’s in the most perfect light around 3 PM. I know I need to have everything cooked by then to get the best light.
When I first started blogging I would try to do one thing every day. A new craft or a new tip idea or a new recipe. Gah that was horrible and I failed miserably. I thought that’s how you were suppose to work at a blog. Maybe that works for some people but not for this ADD girl. (Look a butterfly!)
The second thing I wanted to talk about is COOLER WEATHER. I am ready for you. Where ever you are hiding please make your way to South Texas. I have delicious s’mores hot chocolates that I have to drink and it’s 80 degrees out. HURRY UP! That’s all.
Ps.. you need some s’mores syrup for this hot chocolate. YES, they totally make s’mores syrup! YES, it’s totally delicious. YES, you need it in your life. I think that pretty much answers all the questions I am guessing you were thinking.

Before I read about the recipe I was thinking how awesome your pics were. Just like so many things, I didn’t realize just how much work goes into making them perfect. I also love the presentation you have here. It’s starting to cool off here so it won’t be long before it’s hot chocolate time and I’ll be making this version for sure!
Aww thanks so much Robin! There is a lot that go into food blogging – but it’s fun! Hope you enjoy this hot chocolate!
