Busy busy busy. That’s how I have felt the last several days. Holidays, man! It’s been a good busy, though. I stayed up way too late making chocolate truffles on Friday night. Early breakfast with my best friends on Christmas Eve. Christmas Eve night with my grandparents. This morning I gave my mother the gift of my presence at her church and now I’m finally sitting down to round out our Twelve Days of Cocoa.
This hot cocoa would be considered “sipping chocolate” by some and a ridiculous indulgence by others. It is so thick and rich that if you’re not a chocolate lover like me you’ll want to serve it in small espresso cups instead of regular mugs.
