Hot! Hot!

I'm going to stop complaining about the cold - I should be used to it right, growing up in Ohio and all? But my goodness is it cold this morning. The only thing I could think about posting is how I plan to stay warm today and the rest of the winter. HOT CHOCOLATE! Doesn't this make you want some?

Yummm...Max Brenner - the best hot chocolate in the world!

The second best hot chocolate is Martha Stewart's recipe below:
1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1 quart milk
1 cup semisweet chocolate chips
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
A pinch of salt
Whipped cream

Put cocoa powder in saucepan.
Stir in milk a bit at a time until cocoa liquefies; add remainder.
Add chocolate chips; melt over medium heat, stirring occasionally.
Bring to boil, stirring occasionally.
Remove from heat; stir in vanilla and pinch of salt.
Pour into mugs; top with whipped cream and chocolate shavings.

Enjoy and keep warm!
