healthy hot chocolateYes, there are parts of the world that are warm but most of us are still cleaning snow and sleet from our car windshields every morning.  It’s cold, cold, cold and one of the ways to warm yourself up is with warm beverages.  You could go to Starbucks and give them lots of money in exchange for calorie laden drinks but that isn’t something you can afford to do every day.  We have a better idea. Why don’t you make the most famous warm drink…. hot chocolate… at home?
