Glass Half Full or Half Empty? Hot Chocolate With Marshmallow Creme

This is a picture of an empty office building.

Why am I showing you a picture of an empty office building?

Because I want to voice my opinion on how screwed up our economy is....

No, that's not the reason.

I wanted you to see what I saw Friday every time I looked out the window.

The snow fell most of the morning so soft and slow, it looked like the inside of a snow globe.

Which put me in the mood for hot chocolate.

I dug to the back of my coffee-cup cupboard and found these cute little mugs.

And the mood struck me more when I noticed the day was being spent like this,

And this....

I don't think our pets moved from that bed all day.

I have been holding onto this chocolate bar for quite some time now.

I am going to use it today.

And there is nothing better than dark chocolate mixed into hot cocoa.

After studying Economics most of the day, I headed to the kitchen to reward myself with hot chocolate, since I was all coffeed out.

And a big scoop of marshmallow creme (fluff).

As I am making this hot chocolate, I am thinking that I will be able to share with my daughter. I started pouring it into the cups, and I quickly realized we are only going to get a half cup each. I am still working on proper measurements (what can I say?). At least we each got a taste.

This is what I did:

Hot Chocolate With Marshmallow Creme

8 oz. 2% milk
2 oz. heavy whipping cream
2 TBS light brown sugar

Heat on medium heat until the mixture bubbles around the edge.

Remove from heat and add 2 oz. finely chopped chocolate of your choice.

Whisk gently until the chocolate is melted and well combined. You can adjust your chocolate amount to your liking. If you need to add more than 2 oz. add more.

Top hot chocolate with marshmallow creme and chocolate shavings.

Good Luck~Happy Eating~Enjoy

Live your life in a way that invites others to "taste and see."
