    Over a Hot Cuppa...

    I always dreamt of spending my winters sitting infront of a burning fireplace with my sweetie, enjoying a cup of steamy rich hot chocolate, while it snows cats and dogs outside. When Starbucks introduced their Mint Hot Chocolate last winter, and I had my first tasting, that was it! I thought I had found my winter solace! But drinking that warm breath of fresh air everyday for six months would only make my pockets real light. That's when I starting raiding grocery stores to find the perfect hot chocolate that could be made at home and for a much lesser price. But alas, a couple of packets and many trials later i realised that there was no hope to ome from a pack of powder. A few days ago when I was home sick with a big bad cold, I decided to test my culinary skills once again. All I had was 2% milk, which we all know is quite healthy, but not really the hot chocolate type. But stubborn as I am, I refused to listen. A cup and some chocolate chips later, I am bragging about my new magic touch - making the perfect hot chocolate! Try this recipe if you don't believe me. You can make rich hot chocolate with 2% milk and no sugar. I know I did! Peppermint Hot Chocolate

    Ingredients: 1 cup 2% milk 2 tbsp semi-sweet chocolate chips sugar (if desired for a sweeter taste) 2-3 drops of peppermint extract Method: Warm a cup of milk without bringing it to a boil. Add chocolate chips, take off from heat and stir to melt chocolate into the milk. Pour into a cup and add a few drops of peppermint extract. Use a milk frother to get that frothy goodness if desired.

    Yum! I'm totally trying this! Sweden is well on its way to snowy winter wonderland (not to mention freeze-your-hands-off-it's-so-cold) so any hot drinks are very, very, very, very welcome. :)

    I like hot chocolate, but I really think that it's better to drink your tea. You may read this tea information, and find new tea benefits.

    Seeing these kind of posts reminds me of just how technology truly is undeniably integral to our lives in this day and age, and I can say with 99% certainty that we have passed the point of no return in our relationship with technology.

    I don't mean this in a bad way, of course! Societal concerns aside... I just hope that as memory becomes cheaper, the possibility of transferring our memories onto a digital medium becomes a true reality. It's one of the things I really wish I could experience in my lifetime.
