I really enjoy this period of my life, that I have the chance to stay home with my son. I know that it's not going to last long enough so I'm trying to enjoy it even more.. I love standing with him in front of the window watching the snow. He's begging me to take a sip or two of my favorite cocoa drink.. Well.. the weekend is almost here and the weather is cold so I think this is the perfect timing for sharing this recipe. Go ahead and feel the warmth..!
