Meryl’s Mighty Matcha Hot Chocolate Recipe October 19, 2016
“Who is this Meryl?” I hear you say. Well! She’s only our witty new creative genuis of a Content & Social Media Manager – so look out for her on the blog soon! Not only is she an absolute pro when it comes to dazzling you on Facebook and Instagram, she’s also a pro when it comes to making hot chocolate apparently. She casually made one of her matcha white hot chocolates in the office… and walked back to her desk with a lot of envious glances at her cup. So, I got the recipe out of her in the end and it’s super easy!
