While I am not a fan of cold weather, one of the things I always look forward to is a warming cup of Mexican Hot Chocolate. Here’s one of my favorite recipes for this delicious and spicy treat!
4 cups whole milk
1 cup of skim milk or water
1 1/3 cups (8 oz) bittersweet chocolate chips
2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
1/2 teaspoon chile powder
1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
Pinch of Salt
In a large saucepan, combine all ingredients over low heat, whisking constantly until combined and simmering. Serves 4.
An insightful, introspective and admirable woman I work with has chosen to move her career forward at another company. She left us with an inspiring quote at her resignation meeting:

Friendship is unnecessary; like philosophy, like art, like the universe itself. It has no survival value; rather, it is one of those things which give value to survival. - C. S. Lewis
