November fellows, 

The air has turned quite chilly here in Virginia; I haven't seen frosty mornings like in Washington state yet, but I look forward to colder and colder weather with some anticipation. 


Because I have this to keep me warm! 

While it is still fun to visit Starbucks or some other local cafe for a specially-crafted sweet drink, it is equally rewarding to stay holed up in the house and prepare a fashionable drink by hand.  If you aren't a fan of powdered drinks, and you enjoy the thick, melting deliciousness of a mocha, read on!

Chocolate Mocha

1/4 cup chocolate chips (white, milk, or semi-sweet)
About 8 ounces steamed (or hot) milk
1 shot espresso (1.5 ounces) or strong coffee
Whipped cream (optional)
Chocolate, white, or caramel syrup (optional)

Melt 1/4 cup chips in a double-boiler.  Using a spatula, scrape into a warmed mug (you can rinse with very hot water for a few moments prior to using).  Pour in the shot; add the steamed or hot milk.  Whisk briskly.  Top with whipped cream, if desired.  Go all out and add syrup; get really fancy and sprinkle with shaved chocolate.

Serve to a lucky person, or indulge yourself.
