Time For Hot Chocolate

It’s winter. Is it not the time for hot chocolate???

Here is an excerpt from my latest piece in GoLocalProv

Mom called it cocoa. With a tablespoon, she scooped the powder from the box of Hershey’s and turned it into the milk heating on the stove. She stirred patiently and when done, she poured the cocoa into my cup and topped it with a marshmallow. I was careful to be sure the heat passed my sensitive tongue quickly as I had temporarily stuck it (and removed it painfully) on the rim of my cold sled while waiting to slide at the top of the hill. Once by my tongue, the drink’s warmth trickled to my toes.

    So, A slip of the tongue you ended up with a hot chocolate instead of a hot coffee. Nice to know that Seven Starr whips a nice hot chocolate. On occasion I stop at the Seven Starr and will give it a whirl. Hot chocolate brings me back to my child hood. After a day of shoveling snow for customers or just a day of fun with friends and my sled my mother would make the hot chocolate with a topping of whip cream. The holding of a hot cup of coffee in the morning and running the fingers and pressing my palms against it brings warmth to all of my body. Oh yes,I always asked the server to heat the cup.

    Try a dash of peppermint juice and a spot of rum in your hot chocolate next time, along with the topping of whipped cream…you will like it…
