… hot cocoa on a cold day

Cocoa and a baguette

in the winter i become a cocoa connoisseur. hot cocoa is a nightly treat in our house, made with unsweetened almond milk. the last few weeks i have become a fan of the cocoa at oddfellows, where they top it with a homemade marshmallow. it's a terrific accompaniment to their toasted baguette and butter. it's such a great treat to warm my hands and my belly and my heart.


  1. Very pretty picture. I love hot cocoa too and just looking at this picture makes me feel a little warmer. :)

  2. You inspired me to try almond milk for the first time, and I love it, though I haven't made hot cocoa w/ it yet. Prior to trying almond milk I had always used dairy milk or soy milk, but now it gives me yet another option--and a tasty one. Almonds are so good for you, too! I think it would be kind of fun to try making homemade almond milk.
