Christmas Countdown Day 8

During Christmas time there are many recipes for drinks that people make and it brings back the memories of Christmas pasts. A longtime favorite is hot cocoa, it is a drink for all ages.

This weekend as the temperatures chill, yes,  I know Florida chill as compared to our Northern friends is a big difference, make some hot cocoa

and take some time to sit and look at the Christmas tree or sit by the fireplace.

Enjoy the chill in the air, and just simply live life.

Life is so short to live it in a rush and worrying about all the things that need to be done.

Here is an old fashioned hot cocoa recipe:

Heat 3/4 cup milk in a saucepan over medium heat unti just before boiling.  Remove from heat and transfer to a large mug.  Stir in 1 ounce coarsely chopped bittersweet or semisweet chocolate pieces.  Let stand about 30 seconds then stir to combine.
