Petite Hot Chocolate


Now that I am home on maternity leave, I was looking for a morning ritual drink to jumpstart the each day of new motherhood. I'm not a coffee drinker and I like tea but I tend to drink that in the afternoon. And I found a tin of sipping chocolate from Trader Joe's back in our pantry to make hot chocolate with milk. With a bit of whipping cream, I had my morning drink.

But why the petite? I was making a large mug like this but I found that it was just too much. So I brought out some small espresso cups from my great aunt- the perfect size!

What are your morning food or drink rituals?

I yesterday I did the same thing (minus the whipped cream) for Lucy and Mollie. I put the hot chocolates in espresso cups that Matt and I got from Harrod's in London on our honeymoon. The girls really got a kick out of it!

But I must have coffee in the morning. I always microwave a little NF milk to make it frothy and then pour the coffee on top.

Perfect for Mollie and Lucy! I confess that I love the whipped cream and I don't feel guilty about that nice small size.

Lauren, I would have put whipped cream on if we had some! It looks delish!!

What are your thoughts on Mexican Hot Chocolate? That is probably the ultimate form of hot chocolate for me. As for my morning ritual drink, tea. Preferably a green tea...jasmine green tea with lemon and honey if I'm sick, otherwise just the tea straight up. I always think I'll like coffee. I do love the smell of it in the morning, but when I actually drink it, it does nothing for me.

I've never made Mexican hot chocolate. Perhaps you should come over and teach me and we'll blog about it!
