Hot Chocolate Season Has Begun

To inaugurate it, I tried a new chocolate from Zabar's, just like I did last winter. This time it was a Sicilian chocolate from Casa Don Puglisi, which I found in an eco-friendly brown wrapper. I actually thought it was an eating chocolate at first but when I sampled its granular texture, I realized it was more well-suited to making hot chocolate.

One square melted in about a cup of warm milk, made for a nice brew. Izzy and I enjoyed it thoroughly, though I can't be sure which one is tastier. It has been so long since last year's experiment, I think it is high time we had a hot chocolate tasting.
