Hot coffee. Creamy chocolate. Fragrant orange. And rum from the tropics. What could be cozier on a winter holiday afternoon?
Of course, you can leave out the alcohol but I must confess, I never do!
- 1/4 c. semi-sweet chocolate chips
- 1 cup milk
- 1/4 c. sugar
Heat and stir till chocolate is melted. Boil 2 minutes.
- 1 1/2 cups coffee (a great use for what's left in the pot)
- 1/3 c. half & half
- zest from half an orange
- 1/4 cup rum, optional
Heat to steaming, but do not boil. Strain out the orange rind before serving.
Makes about 3 servings.
