I love rain because it means snow in the mountains. But while I'm not snowboarding in Mammoth, I love to be at home, drinking hot chocolate while the rain is flooding the streets. In honor of this wonderful rain, I'd like to highlight hot chocolate.
I've been a hot chocolate fan my whole life. There was even a time that I used to drink a mug of hot chocolate every night before bed (before I watched calories). I still treat myself to a zebra hot chocolate from Starbucks once a month.
I Heart Cuppycakes has a recipe for a Hot Chocolate Cupcakes: a chocolate-chili cupcake with marshmallow whipped cream frosting, topped with chocolate sprinkles.
This makes me want to stay home from work, get warm with my Snuggie, and eat a hot chocolate cupcake (while drinking hot chocolate, of course).
