Clearly Susan say's "Baby It's Cold Outside" and you need to warm up fast! This has been one of the coldest years across the country in years. Check your weather where you are with the handy dandy weather widget at the bottom for your part of the country. But why you are at it, think of what comfort food would warm your bones.......hot chocolate, of course. Below is a new twist for a recipe...Mexican Hot Chocolate! But wait I am not done there.
