Best Hot Chocolate Ever!

On a very cold evening on January 2, a friend and I had an early dinner. The temperature was 30 degrees outside with a wind chill. The interior of the restaurant was so cold that neither of us took off our coats and scarves during the meal. Driving home, all I could think about was warming myself with a big bowl of hot chocolate. I got out my Italian pot used for frothing lattes and began heating the milk, slowly stirring in unsweetened dark Dutch cocoa, a handful of mini marshmallows, a sprinkle of hot pepper flakes, and black pepper until the mixture was hot. After pouring the chocolate concoction into a cappuccino bowl, I added half and half, a jigger of peppermint schnapps, fresh whipping cream, a few shakes of cloves and topped it with nutmeg. WOW!!! After lighting a fire, I curled up with a book and my comfort drink. It tasted so rich and yummy that this will be my go-to drink whenever it’s cold outside! Best hot cocoa ever!   Cynthia Brian is a New York Times best selling author, speaker, coach, and host of the radio show, StarStyle®-Be the Star You Are!® broadcasting live every Wednesday from 4-5pm PT on the Voice America Network..
