Happy Valentine’s Day, Soupers! And now, for something sweet. I bet you thought chocolate soup would be impossible. Wrong! Not only is it so, but you can serve it both warm AND cold; with or without a hint of liquor. And, if you store it in a mason jar with a lid, you can store it in your fridge for up to three days!
This is a soup that requires continuous stirring so it’s the perfect soup to make with your partner or kids. It will keep you close.
What we loved best about this soup, is that it’s plain fun. We added all types of toppings like confetti sprinkles and cookies. You can even add a bit of mint leaves, or peppermint and even a drizzle of caramel sauce. We never promised that this would be a low calorie treat, but there’s something about this soup that’s oh so bad and good all at the same time. So make it as innocent or as sinful as you choose. Just enjoy!
