Cocoa on a snowy day.

My girls :) 
Today my friends came over for some homemade Hot Cocoa. I know it is crazy but before today I had never made homemade Hot Cocoa. That had to change. So here it is (My first recipe posted. Woot!). I really liked it. More like semi-sweet hot chocolate- a very satisfying semi-sweet!
