One way to minimize the Monday blues -- at least for a few minutes before we head back to reality:
- You need 8 ounces of strong hot coffee. I really like Newman's Own and Don Francisco's blends.
- Two tablespoons of hot chocolate mix.
- And 1/4 cup milk (your choice whether to use whole or skim milk).
For the milk, you can heat it on the stove or with an aerator. I use the stove because I don't have a fancy aerator for foamed milk. If you heat your milk on the stove, just whisk until it's nice and foamy, and add that into the coffee.
You can garnish with whipped cream, dusted chocolate or chocolate syrup.
