This hot chocolate is one of the things I looked forward to most during the holiday season.  Cold weather outside and delicious hot chocolate inside.  The recipe is quick and easy to make, with little preparation.

This is a great recipe to use with your trusty Magnalite pot, or if making for a party, you can use a slow cooker to keep it warm.  Add a splash of peppermint extract for a little extra holiday flavor.
