Daily Inspiration

Made this delicious hot cocoa on Christmas Eve and everyone enjoyed it. We had plenty leftover for Christmas morning. This recipe makes a really rich cocoa so I added just a touch more milk to it. The grandkids preference was to leave out the cinnamon and vanilla, but I'll be adding it when I make another batch here at home during the remaining holidays. This is such a great idea for a gathering and it stores well in the fridge for the next day.
