homemade hot chocolate This winter has been brutal. Negative temperatures, cold wind, polar vortexes?! The multiple layer bundling alone makes Red want to stay inside until Spring (Brown, on the other hand is used to it, having grown up in the North Country where temperatures can get down to -30F.). Because it's generally frowned upon to bring our most favorite warmer (brown liquor) to work, the second best thing is some hot chocolate.

We've mixed up 5 of hot chocolate--including chocolate chile, salted pretzel, and even a white hot chocolate--that all fix up in 5 minutes or less. Throw out that packet of powdered "chocolate" and really treat yo'self.
