I realize that when the temperature is 50-something degrees outside, it's not that cold....like at all. But to us in LA, it constitutes a cold winter's day! Today I went out and got some winter rainy day staples: firewood, wine, ingredients for homemade vegetable soup, baking materials--and makings for a great cup of hot chocolate!
Inspired by the amazing "Cocoa Trio" at Seattle's Best, I made a lower-calorie version of one of my favorite treats!
Powered Hot Chocolate: 80 calories Whipped Cream (15 calories/2 tbsp): 45 calories Shaved Chocolate (1 block of Hershey's chocolate shaved with vegetable peeler): 40 calories Chocolate Stick: 80 calories
Total Calories: 245
(Compared to a small Cocoa Trio at 400 calories)
It came out so good that I made G. one, too! Although I have to admit, it's pretty difficult to mess up chocolate and whipped cream!
Welcome to my blog. I loooove to travel-even if it's just to a new town. Adventure is always right around the corner. I write about fashion, food, books, beauty products...anything that I find useful or beautiful. I have a soft-spot for handbags and argyle socks. If I don't like something, I won't write about it-no need for negativity. You'll also never see any politics here either. Hope you enjoy. ;) XOXO-L.
