Red Velvet Hot Chocolate

I realize that I’m just barely squeezing this in.

Many of you are dreaming of spring, and thinking up meals and treats to get you in the mood for the upcoming warmer weather.

So was I….. until I saw this!  I mean I’ve had red velvet cake before,  but red velvet hot chocolate!  What!  It took a lot of restraint not to lick my computer screen when I first saw this.

I love the idea of red velvet.  It’s all fancy and decadent.  I know, it’s just chocolate with LOTS of red food coloring.  Someone already ruined the illusion for me.  Just like wrestling, I was perfectly content thinking it was real,  .. opps…. Are there still some of you out there that still think its real…. sorry.

Even though I know the truth, I still feel all important drinking this.  Like somehow, I’m special.

Don’t worry, you  can feel special too, come inside out of the cold and warm up with this, and dream of the upcoming spring season.

Just a side note, I totally devoured this after I took the photos, like I had red /chocolate whip cream all over my face devour.
