Yesterday, it was dark and rainy all day long which naturally put me in the mood for hot chocolate. I debated whether to make it the (better) old-fashioned way, on the stove, or the easy way. It wasn't a lengthy debate because within seconds I was ripping open a packet of the instant stuff. Whatever, that's not the point of this post. What I really want to tell you about is the amaretto.
I microwaved my mug of hot chocolate powder and water and then ~ this is where it gets good ~ added a splash (about a tablespoon) of amaretto. Holy cow! Why had I never done this before?
Seriously, go try it. You can thank me later.
