Winter Simplicity served hot or cold.

Hot chocolate.


Chocolate that has been melted into hot, foamy milk...


It has been around for thousands of years.  We have morphed into much more complicated forms by adding other flavors but 

at its simple best - it is good chocolate, melted into hot milk. 

Add whipped cream or marshmallows, crushed peppermints or cinnamon, make it thicker like the Parisians or thinner like the elementary schools, it is still a hug in a mug!  

But wait...

Let's add Ice Cream,

And Peppermint Candy Canes crushed into pieces,

And Hot Chocolate (that has been cooled),

And then add a little milk, blend it altogether into a decadent, frozen extravaganza!  

Lo and behold - the Hot Chocolate Milkshake!  (If you are feeling crazy, and I know you are - you could add a little peppermint schnapps or creme de cocoa, or a little vodka or all three!)  Dress it up with some marshmallow fluff or whipped cream.

We (Tovolo) are about to release new tiny cookie cutters that make tiny cookies that can sit on the top of a straw!  They are the cutest thing I have ever seen! They elevate a milkshake or make a simple glass of milk the ultimate Milk & Cookies! I made these out of leftover sugar cookie dough, added some sprinkles, and classed up my fabulous milkshake!
