Shades of Winter Warm Up

It has been undeniably cold around here. Sub zero temperatures certainly give mornings a slow start. I generally start the day with hot tea and an english muffin. On the weekends I like treat myself to a heaping cup of sugar! Hot Cocoa that is. I’m a firm believer that if you gonna indulge, than come on indulge. I topped mine with cool whip and mini dark chocolate chips. Add a dash of cinnamon or pumpkin spice to mix up the flavors. In case you missed it, check out my Hot Cocoa Milk Bottles and Homemade Hot Cocoa Recipe from Bittersweet Walnut Grove Winter Thyme Cookbook.
