I don't need an excuse to drink hot cocoa, but the weather helps. Leaves are on the ground, a chilly fog is rolling in earlier and my cashmere is out in full effect. O yes, I loves me some soft thangs.
What's the difference between hot chocolate & hot cocoa? How come sometimes hot cocoa burns before that wonderful melt-in-your-mouth-sumptuous-mmm-hot chocolate-y-ness comes through? Why shouldn't you cook chocolate in a saucepan on the stove?
These very answers can be found over yonder, through the woods and across a frozen lake, at KQED. Put on your scarf, snowshoes or ice skates, and cuddle up to a steaming mug of hot cocoa...
