Decadent Hot Chocolate

Join me for a nightcap? I pledge to get you drunk on this oh-so-chocolatey Hot Chocolate!

I’ve been chugging mugs of velvety hot chocolate by the gallon. Don’t judge me, its holiday season! The diet starts Monday! First Monday of January! Hah!
Never met a person who dislikes chocolate. May be I avoid such people subconsciously. No offense but what kind of person hates chocolate! Just don’t want that sort of negativity around me.

Hot Chocolate is like a warm comforter plus a pair of cozy socks on a brutal winter night. Personally I could dance under a waterfall of liquid chocolate and swim in a pool of it.

OK. Stop drooling and start brewing! Leave comments telling me what your favorite winter beverage is and how do you make it. Tag me on Facebook/Instagram. You know I like to drool over food pictures.
