A study in hot chocolate part II

If you’re going to bake a chocolate cake, why not use a high-quality chocolate?  I have a few favorites, one of which is E. Guittard’s Cocoa Rouge Unsweetened Cocoa Powder.  Recently, I was looking at the package and saw that they had a hot cocoa recipe, what they call a cocoa beverage (fancy!).  Not sure why I don’t remember seeing it before, but I’m so glad that I did.
Following the recipe produced the perfect cup of hot chocolate.  Warm and soothing, whisking me away for a brief moment.  Sometimes I like to add a little coffee or espresso for a little bit of a pick-me-up.  I’m not sure if that makes it hot chocolate with a shot of coffee or should it be called a mocha?  Whatever the case, it’s simply delicious!
