After all the frantic hustle and bustle of driving in circles for the perfect parking spot, standing in long lines at the register and fighting through mounds of traffic, make one last stop by the grocer before you head home.
You will thank me when you curl up with this perfect cuppa Hot Chocolate! This recipe is loaded with cream and milk so for those of you who are lactose intolerant, try substituting hot water for the cream and milk. It won’t be as rich and creamy but it will taste hot and sweet. it’s the simple things like a .25 cent cup of magic that makes this the most wonderful time of the year!
