{Christmas} Day 2: Cocoa Blend

December 2, 2011 § 4 Comments

During the Christmas season, my mother would serve up cups of hot cocoa with a hint of peppermint.  She would make the hot cocoa & add a peppermint candy or small candy cane to our drink.  It was so delicious & always reminiscent of this time of year.  It is a favorite childhood memory.

As of late, I’ve been craving a rich cup of hot cocoa.  I recently popped into Trader Joe’s & came across a Peppermint Hot Cocoa mix.  Here’s my latest indulgence.
