The other night Meeker got into bed and as I kissed him goodnight, I distinctly smelled chocolate on his breath.

Were you just eating chocolate?

Yeah, I bit off Santa’s head.

What the heck are you talking about?

You know, that big basket of German chocolate that one of your blog readers sent us at Christmas? Some of it’s still in the back of the pantry and there’s an old chocolate Santa in there and I just ate his head before I came up here.

Well, the next morning I went and search of this headless Santa, and sure enough, he was there.

But not for long.

Sorry Santa, I’m much to ready for summer to be here to have you hanging around.

It didn’t help that yesterday was snowy and miserable outside – it might as well have been December 25th.

But I’ll tell what, drinking a (couple of) mini cups of coffee spiked chocolate sure boosted my spirits.

Drinking Chocolate

  • one headless milk chocolate Santa (or Easter bunny!), the equivalent of about 2 ounces of chocolate
  • 2 T heavy whipping cream
  • 1/4 c milk
  • 2 T brewed coffee

Combine all ingredients in a small saucepan and whisk over medium heat until it is all combined and has turned to delicious drinkable liquid.

And that my friends, is how you drink (almost) an entire candy bar in five minutes flat.
