Chocolate Lovers: Gourmet Hot Chocolate for Grown-Ups
Posted Aug 26 2008 12:31pm
As the fall days get shorter and the chill of winter afternoons slowly creep up, don’t get caught without the comfort of a delicious mug of hot chocolate. Hot chocolate soothes the soul and wipes out those chocolate cravings. Why is chocolate so loved? It provides us with the endorphin-enabled happy feelings we associate with a good mood and comfort.
Many of us grew up with easy to prepare packets of instant hot chocolate such as Swiss Miss and Nestle Hot Cocoa. If you were able to add some hot water to a mug with a package of mix and simply stir, you could enjoy some hot chocolate in a few minutes. Who could ever forget those “mini marshmallows? Those hot chocolate moments were fun as children.
