I was pondering hot chocolate this morning. I know... who does that? Well, I do. I was drinking my hot chocolate while preparing my Gospel Doctrine lesson, drinking in the warm chocolaty goodness, and thinking of how it makes me happy. I decided that probably my favorite kind of hot chocolate is the Stephen's Raspberry Chocolate flavor mixed with Belgium Dark Chocolate flavor, 1/2 milk, 1/2 water. This comes in just above the Hazelnut flavor with a dash of cinnamon and the Dark Chocolate with a sprinkle of Chili Powder. Then I remembered a blog post from my friend's cooking blog (ourbestbites.com) about recipes for gourmet hot chocolate, and I vowed to try some of them soon. After those, you can never really be satisfied with Swiss Miss again. This thought brought me to think that I would like to try hot chocolate in Switzerland, made from scratch with good Swiss chocolate, that I could drink while looking out the Alps. Mmmmm, on so many levels, mmmmmm. I wonder if they make hot chocolate like us or like the Croats do... Croatian hot chocolate is more like warmed chocolate pudding. You literally have to eat it with a spoon. It is very rich and delicious. I ordered pudding once to see what the difference was, apparently pudding to them means something solid, like flan.
