Recipe by Chef Cathy

I've had this recipe for awhile. I like to make this cause it is very soothing, creamy and frothy. I always get rave reviews when I make this for friends!

This is a great creamy recipe! Putting eggs in your hot chocolate seemed strange, so who would have thunk that it would be perfectly fine. Made for the Bargain Basement tag game.
