Foodie Thursday: Hot Chocolate
Well the weather weirdness continues apace in the LA basin- Sunday it was in the mid 80's. Tuesday it was raining and windy and didn't crack 50. Which is my excuse for not finishing the review I was writing- the scent I started with was good at 80 degrees, but at 50 I wanted more cozy ones.
I also wanted Hot Chocolate.
I love it in most of it's forms- I am not a food snob about it either (I admit I am about other things). I am just as happy with a steaming cup of Swiss Miss as I am with some artisinal hand-rubbed cocoa made from milk from free-ranging French cows who are only fed clover and sunshine. I also like it made with that yummy Mexican chocolate, Ibarra, which adds in a dash of cinnamon to make a delicious drink (and great Mole too).
As a matter of fact, I'm going to log off and go make some now. Let me know your favorite recipes in the comments.
