Living in Hot-Lanta, I don't often have to don a winter coat. But with temperatures dipping into the 20s and 30s this week, I finally pulled the bulky pea coat out of storage and wore it out today. As a friend described it earlier - leaving me hooting with laughter - this is "some kind of Yankee cold!" Still, I'm fully aware that all of my friends in the Midwest and Northeast would love to have Atlanta's weather, which is downright balmy in comparison to the subarctic temperatures they've been experiencing. But for folks down South, this is as cold as it gets. So everyone is feeling the chill these days.
Either way, I've often found that nothing beats the winter blues more than a piping hot mug of hot chocolate! So here are a few sucralose-sweetened recipe variations to help warm up those frozen fingers and toes. Have a great weekend and stay warm, wherever you are!
