So off to the stove the bunny and I went, along with milk. I heated up the milk until it was warm but not hot and began breaking an ear into little pieces that I sprinkled into the pan. After stirring for maybe five minutes, the chocolate melted and combined with the milk forming a surprisingly delicious and chocolately drink that totally took care of the craving. Okay, craving’s a bad word. It exceeded my expectations. There, that’s better.
Low and behold, after purchasing two tins of hot cocoa from Williams-Sonoma – peppermint and chocolate – I discovered chocolate, real chocolate, inside. And you heat it in milk and stir, stir, stir. So I guess my instinct was pretty good on more than one level.
