Much Ado About Nothing


on October 26, 2006

With the temperature barely getting into the 50s now, “hot chocolate season” is upon us. Just thought I’d share our favorite recipe:

1 packet hot chocolate mix
3/4 cup warm milk
2 cap-fulls Peppermint Schnapps

If you’re concerned about the alcohol content, get the 60-proof version instead of the 100-proof. You’re not adding much of it anyway, but really, you’re after the lovely (and ultra smooth) peppermint taste, not a buzz. Yes, you could use peppermint flavoring, but it just doesn’t taste as good as the Schnapps does — the flavoring tends to have a bit of a bite to it, and most flavorings do have alcohol in them anyway (although it’s a pretty insignificant amount).

As I’m typing this, I’ve got some chocolate walnut cookies in the oven and John is heating up the fireplace. I really love fall and winter! :)
