Hot Chocolate
Serves 1
4 tablespoons Hot Chocolate Mix
8 ounces boiling water
Add marshmallows or whipped cream.

I have even been known to add tequila! If you want to try a delicious spicy hot chocolate, but don't have the time or desire to make this mix, try Organic Fair Trade Xocolatl Hot Chocolate from Dagoba
