Hot Chocolate for my Sweetheart!

Hot Chocolate for one

Today is the last day of winter break! The 5 year old will be heading back to school tomorrow! What better way to end a wonderful break with some Hot Chocolate that I made just for him! 

Over the winter break, we had loads of fun baking, cooking, partying  and just having plain awesome time with friends! We went on a road trip, reconnected with friends who are more like family, and came back rejuvenated souls! It was such a refreshing little break! 
As much as I look forward to the 'me time', I really miss the Little Champ when he is not around! Source of endless happiness he's not! I feel a medley of things when he's around - amusement, anger, frustration, happiness, pride - but sadness is not on that list! And that is what I love about kids - their amazing ability to pull us out from the 'depths of despair' with a simple toothy smile or a sloppy kiss!

Hot Chocolate for One

This is a very easy recipe and the result is oh-so-good! It is rich and luscious and terribly delicious! A few ingredients and you have yourself a perfect little treat!

Ingredients
  • Milk (of your choice) - 1 Cup
  • Semi-sweet Chocolate - 2 ounces, chopped (I used Ghiradelli baking bar)
  • A dash of vanilla extract
  • Unsweetened Cocoa Powder - 1/2 tbsp (for intense chocolaty flavor)
  • Pinch of salt
  • Marshmallows - 2 or 3 (optional)
Heat the milk on low heat and bring it to a simmer. Take it off the heat and add the chopped chocolate pieces. Let it rest for a minute or two. Whisk it briskly till all the chocolate is melted and the mixture is silky smooth. Stir in the vanilla extract, add a pinch of salt and mix. If you prefer a more intense chocolaty flavor, add the cocoapowder.
Since the Little Champ had specially requested that his 'Hot Chocolate' be at room temperature, I did have time to take the photos. If you prefer, heat it up a little before serving it. Throw in a couple of marshmallows, if you wish!
