I love hot chocolate drinks!

Polar express I think just has to be my all time favourite Christmas film, every year I sit down Christmas Eve after the house is clean and Christmas Day prep work is down and indulge in the film with a hot chocolate with my partner but I've NEVER seen a recipe with it all done in the microwave....I can't wait o try this out this year)

I can't wait to try out this recipe when the weather turns cold again! I love the tie-in with the book, too. What a cute combination!

Oh man, this sounds incredible! I never would have thought to add a Three Musketeers bar to my hot cocoa, but it sounds amazing.

Aside from Mars Bars, Three Musketeers used to be my favorite chocolate bar, when I was a kid. I haven't had one for years, so it certainly brings back fond memories. I may have to try this recipe. It sounds and looks delicious.

My mouth is watering. Definitely going to make some tonight.

This Polar express candy bar hot cocoa looks delicious. I cannot wait for Christmas to try it but will wait until weather gets colder. Three Musketeers candy bars, marshmallows and whipped cream and milk who could resist them and cinnamon for warmth. What a great way to stay warm and this is such a cool name for it. How about watching the Polar Express movie with the kids and telling them they will have a special Polar Express treat. Can you make this with any other candy bars?

This is so delicious! I made it on the stove and it was so chocolatey. It was the perfect drink to keep me warm, especially since I accidentally added more than a dash of cinnamon!
