This Butterscotch Hot Cocoa Will Warm You Up!
Nobody really wants to read a healthy hot cocoa recipe in June, huh. I’ll have more appropriate spring garden recipes for you Sunday.
But I went for a bike ride at 7:45 pm up the canyon. My friend Jennie kept griping about the next steep hill: “I thought you said this was the last one!” It’s my favorite ride, 10 miles up and 10 miles back, so beautiful it takes my breath away.
Somehow I didn’t think about how cold it would be, in my t-shirt and shorts, flying down the canyon at 35 mph. I was so frozen when I got to the bottom that I raced home, made this hot cocoa, and got in a steaming hot bath with it.
