Baby It's Cold Outside..

....well, maybe not here in Charleston! Unfortunately, we haven't been able to experience that winter chill yet, but despite the weather, we hope you are cuddling up with the ones you love by a Christmas tree as lovely as this one. While we're snuggled up with our sweeties, we're going to be serving something sweet too! Try out this recipe for the perfect hot chocolate!


3 1/2 cups sugar
2 1/4 cups cocoa
1 tablespoon table salt
Whole milk for serving

In a large bowl, combine sugar, cocoa, and salt, and whisk to combine well. Store the mixture in an airtight container.
For individual servings, pour 1 cup whole milk into a microwave-safe mug, and microwave on high just until hot. Add 2 tablespoons of cocoa mix, and stir to dissolve. For a larger batch of cocoa, warm the milk in a saucepan set over medium-low heat, taking care not to let the milk boil; as it warms, stir in 2 tablespoons of mix for each cup of milk.

While you're in the holiday entertaining mood, why not take some inspiration from some of these table settings for your special holiday gathering with family and friends!
