Hot Chocolate

Published on 26 September 2022 at 23:49

Hot chocolate is a very good drink -

It warms from your head to your feet.

It’s rich and milky,

And oh, so silky…

I need some hot chocolate to drink!

Behind the Poem...Cocoa

I know I talk about tea and coffee on here a lot, but honestly, hot chocolate is probably my favorite warm beverage. I don't drink it very often anymore, but oh my goodness is it good. I like to make it with half water, half milk, and a lot of cocoa powder (my brother taught me that). Bonus points if the milk is frothy. I've made homeade cocoa before which is also very good, but I really just don't feel like making it every time a want a cup. Swiss Miss is where it's at. 
I think my favorite hot cocoa recipe is for white hot chocolate, though. If you've never tried it, please look up a recipe. It's just *chef's kiss*. The first Thanksgiving I made something for, it was a definite hit. 
Unfortunately, I really don't have many specific stories surrounding hot cocoa. It's just one of those things that's a general part of life for me. It's a good warm sweet thing, and I keep it around when I can. I put hot cocoa powder on vanilla ice cream, I put hot cocoa powder in coffee, also I've said "hot cocoa" nearly every time I've written it so far when in reality I exclusively use the term "hot chocolate" so there's that. 
And well, I think that about sums up my feelings on the topic. I'm going to go make some now.
