Recipe by Bekah Balmer

I pulled this recipe out of the back of Susan Mallery's Novel Already Home (great book btw). I'm posting it exactly as it appeared there but I have to admit I made adjustments to fit our tastes (for example I left out the coffee, doubled the cocoa and used pinto deans instead of kidney beans). This was a real hit at my house.
