I gave up sweets for Lent. Some days it’s a real struggle and other days it’s not. Here’s a tip on how to satisfy your sweet tooth.
When Williams-Sonoma had their big clearance sale recently, I picked up a jar of their Salted Caramel Hot Chocolate. Last night I was feeling like I needed something sweet. I pretty much cleared out my pantry of anything tempting, but I remembered my cocoa. It’s classified as a drink and by using skim milk, it’s good for me and a nice treat before bed.
You simmer your milk on the stove, add a few tablespoons of the mix and whisk till combined. It was very good. I finished 3/4 of it, then got up to get the laundry. When I came back Ruthie, the Weinerful, had finished it off. Sweet dreams for everyone.
