Another snowy day favorite….hot chocolate. This sure beats the Swiss Miss mix. Takes a few more minutes, but well worth it. Chocolatey, sweet and spicy all the things great hot chocolate should be.

Makes 2 servings.

In a pot wisk together all of the below ingredients (stir consistently to avoid burning), bring to a simmer over medium heat and serve with marshmallows or whipped cream or simply alone in a nice mug. Enjoy!

Ingredients

3 cups of skim milk (I use Farmland skim plus, if you don’t have that you can use 2% or whatever kind of milk you have)

1/4 cup of unsweetened coco powder

Pinch each of cinnamon, allspice and nutmeg

2 tablespoons confectioners sugar

splash of vanilla extract

tiny pinch of salt

5-8 semisweet chocolate chips

NewYorkGiantsI went to watch the NY Giants season opener Sunday. And that means — Tailgating! I was asked to make something sweet, and there is no bigger crowd pleaser than brownies. Check out these delicious brownies – made from scratch. Try it just once, and you will be amazed at how much more yummy they are then the boxed variety.

Ingredients:

1 cup of butter

2 cups sugar

2 teaspoons vanilla extract

4 eggs, slightly beaten

1 cup flour

1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder (like Hersheys)

1/2 teaspoon salt

1 generous handful of mini chocolate chips

Directions:

Preheat oven to 350.

In medium saucepan over low heat, melt butter. Add sugar, vanilla and eggs. Whisk until blended well. Sugar should melt / dissolve mostly. Do not let it boil – you will get scrambled eggs – (simmering is okay).

Measure out flour, cocoa and salt in a large bowl. Mix to combine. Stir in butter and sugar mixture to combine. Fold in mini chocolate chips.

Pour into a 13 by 9-inch pan sprayed with PAM. Bake for 30 to 40 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Cool. Cut into triangles. Enjoy!
