Hot Chocolate

Hope you all had a terrific weekend. I have been following the news about the big snow storms in many parts of the US. I hope you are safe and warm wherever you are!.  In Colorado, we have  yet to see snow showers this year, which is rather unusual.  A part of me is glad that I can still walk out easily without worries of black ice, shoveling and the likes, but the other  part of me is apprehensive about missing a white Christmas.

The mercury levels are still low enough, and on these cold days something like hot chocolate to keep warm is welcomed. I made this keeping my kids in mind, and I am glad to say they loved it.  This is not a unique recipe I am sure, but a gentle reminder in case you are missing it.  A wonderful chocolaty drink! :-)

This is so good not only for the kids, you will enjoy it also.  Smack!

Hot Chocolate

Serve with some whipped cream on top

  25. It is a good drink for winters. Nice pictures... I love chocolate though they damage the teeth...

    The physical instructor asked me to drop chocolates and milk products including ice creams from my diet... and I was foolowing the schedule until when Dileep asked me "ippo karikyathe pinne prayam aayi pallu poriyumbol aano karikyunathu"(Are you going to enjoy it when you will be old, loosing your teeth)... seems sensible isnt it?

    Anyways nice post and thanks for sharing it.
