I’m a fan of all things hot chocolate–as long as it’s not poured from a packet and mixed with hot water. Simply Recipes has this recipe posted with several suggestions for delicious variations. Unfortunately, I am not currently sipping a cup of this nectar because
- I don’t have enough bittersweet chocolate on hand.
- I have neither a vanilla bean, a cinnamon stick or an orange for zesting. (And that’s only one of the versions I want to try!)
- It’s 19 degrees outside and not even the possibility of the best hot chocolate I have ever tasted will get me out the door until it warms up to at least 25 degrees.
So if you happen to have the ingredients on hand, try it and let me know what you think. I know I will have a response in less than twenty-four hours!
