    Studentchef's Note:

    This comes from The Montreal Gazette and is great to have during a cold winter day. I personally like to have hot chocolate when the weather is getting to me.

      Made as a treat for myself when I was not feeling my best and it was so enjoyable. I loved that this is not overly sweet and really gives a punch of chocolate! It was a knock-out for me! :)
