Baby, It’s Cold Outside!

Delightful, by mamapainter is … well … delightful.

A lot can change in a year. A lot can stay the same. Below is the post made on House Honcho one year ago today …

If the temperature highs have been in the 20’s in your neck of the woods like they have been in ours, then this post is for you! Baby, it’s cold outside and here’s a Martha Stewart hot chocolate recipe to keep you warm tonight.

Perfect Hot Chocolate

Serves 8

10 ounces best-quality bittersweet or semisweet chocolate, chopped
2 quarts milk
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract


1. Combine chocolate and milk in a large saucepan over medium heat. Whisk until chocolate is melted and milk is very hot and frothy; about 20 minutes.

2. Remove from heat and add vanilla. Pour into a blender, filling halfway. Blend, holding lid in place (the hot liquid will expand) until frothy. Serve immediately. Blend remaining milk-and-chocolate mixture.


Enjoy–this year and next!
