Hot Chocolate Bundt Cake
This is a fun holiday twist on bundt cake – hot chocolate bundt cake with a hot cocoa chocolate glaze.
Winter doesn’t seem so bad anymore!
If only this bundt cake could warm you up like a cup of hot chocolate than I wouldn’t have to wear long underwear, sweat pants, wool socks, and 4 long sleeve shirts.
I like to stay cozy :-)
We haven’t gotten any snow yet where I live in Illinois, and that is totally okay with me since I experienced 22 minnesota winters.
Why are people even out driving?!
But Minnesota winters can be beautiful..
