Treat of the Week #7

I skipped a week on the treats, but this one will make up for it. Last week I went to my bookclub meeting and our host, Sara, made this terrific chocolaty concoction. This makes the best hot chocolate I have had in a LONG time. Try it out (especially all my Utahites, I heard it snowed for you this last weekend.)

Chocolate Mousse for Hot Chocolate

Recipe for: Chocolate Mousse for Hot Chocolate
From the Kitchen of: Sara Walker

6 oz. of semi-sweet chocolate chips (1/2 of a regular bag)
1/2 cup sugar

Recipe instructions:

Combine the chocolate chips, sugar and water in a small sauce pan. Heat over medium heat, stirring frequently until chocolate is melted. Cool. Add the vanilla.

I feel so cool to have made the treat of the week! Enjoy, -just remember to let the chocolate cool before you add it to the whipped cream -if you don't it will melt the cream! Sara
