I love this treat during cold weather or stormy days. Make it a date for two and cuddle with the hubs along with a toasty mug! When serving to children, replace rum with rum extract (2 tbsp).

    Optionally, sometimes I like to make it a little frothy, so I whip it with a submersion blender, right before serving. Or I have a special kettle I make cocoa in, as seen in picture. Very good.
