It’s cold and blustery out today, but I’m snuggled under a warm blanket with a big mug of Laura Bush’s Hot Chocolate this morning.
This recipe combines one of my favorite hot cocoa additions (cinnamon) with a new and unexpected flavor (orange zest). The spicy zip of cinnamon combined with the clean flavor of the orange make this recipe feel lighter on the palate, while still being warm and comforting.
I cut the recipe in half since I’m not making it for a crowd and I still wound up with a hefty cupful, oh darn! I guess I’ll just have to finish it all by myself! Don’t you just hate when that happens? 😉
What are you doing to stay warm this morning?
