Snow is rolling in across the Northeast and some places are expecting to receive up to a foot or more of snow. After a long morning of shoveling your going to need something to warm you up. Or maybe you plan to watch the snow fall as you cuddle up with a loved one. Either way boozy hot chocolate is sure to hit the spot.
Chocolate and chartreuse are a classic combination. The herbal liqueur pairs perfectly with the deep and soulful earthiness of chocolate.
