This is not your mother’s hot chocolate. Or at least my mother’s hot chocolate, which was, and still is, Swiss Miss. Now, I loved my Swiss Miss as a kid. And I love a good cup of Stephen’s hot cocoa now. This hot chocolate isnot an everyday cup of cocoa. It’s a thick, dark, decadent, rich cup of chocolate. A grown up drink. Hey, kids- you get out the Swiss Miss, Mommy will have this.
Oh, if you are on a diet, walk away, now.
