Hot Chocolate with CBD chocolate rim

Hosting a group? Make the hot cocoa a focal point of the get together! Offer different chocolate bases and a few different toppings. Marshmallows, candy, and toffee bits are always great options for toppings! If you are having hot chocolate for a group, sometimes it’s easier to go with store-bought hot chocolate powder. However, if you have the time and the dedication to homemade hot cocoa, I highly recommend giving this a go.

Everything you’ll need: (serves 2)

  • 2 cups milk (I prefer whole milk, any milk works though!)

  • 2 tablespoons sugar

  • 4 oz bittersweet chocolate

  • 1 dropper of BARE CBD

  • ¼ cup semi-sweet chocolate chips

  • Optional toppings

Directions:

  1. Warm milk and sugar in a saucepan over low heat

  2. Break bittersweet chocolate into chunks and microwave for 30 seconds. Remove from microwave and stir. Continue to microwave in 15-second intervals with stirring breaks until chocolate is completely melted

  3. Add melted chocolate to milk in the saucepan – the milk should be bubbling just along the sides of the pan

  4. Whisk together, let rest and stay warm on an unlit burner

  5. Melt semi-sweet chocolate chips in a low and wide bowl in the microwave. Once melted, add 1 dropper full of BARE and mix. Dip the rim of the mug into the melted chocolate, top as desired before chocolate sets

  6. Pour hot cocoa

Don’t be afraid to add an extra drop or two directly to your hot chocolate!

Warm Apple Cider with CBD sugar rim

There are two ways you can go about apple cider… You can make it from scratch at home, or you can save your time and add some Trader Joe’s apple cider to your cart the next time you go grocery shopping. Personally, I do the latter.

If you’re making this for a party, I recommend heating up the apple cider in a pot on the stove and prepping the rims on the glasses just before the party begins. If you’re just making one glass to sip on by the Christmas tree, feel free to warm it up in the microwave!

Everything you’ll need: (serves 2)

  • 2 cups of apple cider

  • BARE CBD

  • Cinnamon sugar

  • Cinnamon stick

Directions:

While the cider is heating up, sprinkle a fair amount of cinnamon sugar onto a flat plate or surface and set aside. Run some BARE CBD oil around the rim of the glasses you’re using to serve the drink. Once the BARE is lightly coating the rim of the glass, dip the coated rim into the cinnamon sugar. Add the warm cider and a cinnamon stick, and enjoy!
