I left New York City long ago so I could bathe in the sunshine of Australia, swim in the Pacific and leave the cold east coast of the USA behind.  Wrong!  With the wind howling on this winters night, all I can think of is Hot Chocolate.  It’s childhood memories all over again.

Try this recipe from my Simply Pefect Chocolate cooking class. (If you’re keen on chocolate, we also do Chocolate Cooking Team Building!) Enjoy and rug up!
