Time to get back to basics…my love for chocolate and specifically, hot cocoa. If you have not been paying attention lately, there’s more to the beverage than Swiss Miss.
Exhibit A: Hot cocoa cake balls ala Sugar Derby.
Exhibit B: Mexican hot cocoa cake.
Exhibit C: Fresh mint hot cocoa (Thank you not without salt.)
If this is all too fancy – just throw a peppermint stick into your cocoa. You will be happy. Or grind one up into your chocolate milk shake. Life is way too short to not get a little decadent from time to time. Remember: No whining over spilled cocoa – or anything for that matter.
