    I felt in in my fingers...as well as my toes!

    It was cold today, no...I mean - COLD!!! Even with the heating on, I was chilly! And missing my morning cup of coffee definitely did not make things any better! By the time it was late afternoon, I was craving for warmth, and caffeine. But coffee was not on my mind. I wanted something much more richer. Something that would defrost my almost numb toes. Something, that tasted and gave me the comforting feel of chocolate. So what gives you the rich chocolatey warmth as well as a much needed caffeine kick? - Mochalate! I just love the taste of Mocha. And why wouldn't I! It combines my two all-time favourite flavours - Chocolate AND Coffee!! So I dragged my frozen feet, wrapped in thick socks and my cute pair of fuzzy slippers, into the kitchen and turned on the stove. I worked on intuition and poured the simmering beauty into a huge cup. One sip and I just knew I had done it again. This was going to be another regular winter drink for me, after my wonderful Peppermint Hot Chocolate!

    Hot Mochalate Ingredients: 1 cup 2% milk 2 tbsp bitter-sweet chocolate chips 1 tsp brown sugar 1 tsp instant coffee Method: Heat everything in a small pan, stirring constantly till chocolate melts and milk is warmed through. Pour in a large cup and enjoy it warm.

    Aaahh! The pleasure of feeling my toes again!

    Sailu: It definitely is, Sailu! I could really feel the blood beging to flow in my body all over again. :o)
