Jon picked a coffee shop (with little to no prompting from me?!) with a decent selection of goodies and any kind of java a mama could want. He was pretty stoked about the chocolate croissant.
He is a joy to hang out with and a blast to talk to.
Like pretending to be terrified of his chocolate croissant.
What a nut. I love him.
So I'm taking total advantage of the ones I've got left.
We laughed, told stories, shared memories, and touched on some deep issues of life
The white chocolate mocha was good-- but my company was way better.
So in my Real Simple mag, they share some ideas about sprucing up hot chocolate.
Not like hot chocolate isn't good all on it's own.
But I guess if you drink as much as my fam this chilly time of year you could use a little variety to spice things up.
Care if I share?
Option #1: add marshmallows and 3 T malted milk powder (they say to broil mallows for 30 sec?!) I say over. rated. But that could be just me...
Option #2: top hot cocoa with 1/4 cup mint chocolate ice cream and 1 sprig fresh mint (got any fresh mint in your house?! me neither...) Well, they had me at mint chocolate ice cream at least
Option #3: mix cocoa with 1 pinch chili pepper and 1 pinch cinnamon and top with 2 T whipped cream and 1 more pinch of both chili pepper and cinnamon.
That's definitey intriguing, don't you think?!
Well....there you go, Blogger B's. A little challenge set before you as you begin the weekend:
Just say "no" to boring hot cocoa
