It’s Always Cocoa Time

Back in 2006, the first time I posted every day in November, I posted the Hot Cocoa Ceremony.

I still do this, more or less. Hot chocolate and homemade apple pie are my 2 favorite foods. If it’s cool and gloomy even in August I will make this.

I no longer use a standing blender, I use a stick blender but I mix it in a container. I tried one time to blend it in the cup and it did not go well. Don’t bother trying yourself.

I never add cayenne or vanilla.

During the Covid I came perilously close to running out of cocoa so next time I saw it at the grocery store I grabbed two kinds. My recollection was that the Dutch process was better.

With the two above choices the Hershey’s is miles better.
