Today I combined two recipes into this amazing breakfast! Top it with some whipped cream and serve it with a few slices of bacon.
I used this recipe as the filling for the crepes. While the apples were cooking, I made the crepes, following Leighann’s recipe over at Living with Four Hobbits and a Giant. They were pretty good, if I do say so myself!
Brrr! It is cold outside!! Even here in the south the temperatures are frigid! While we’ve not had any snow or ice, we have had below-freezing temperatures for several days at a time…and today the wind just won’t quit!
On cold days like this, a cup of hot cocoa helps warm the bones…especially while sitting in front of a glowing fire. This recipe came from my favorite Fanny Farmer cookbook and is very easy to make. Enjoy it topped with mini-marshmallows or a scoop of whipped cream.
1/4 c. unsweetened cocoa
2 tbsp. sugar
1/2 c. water
4 cups milk (half and half if you like it creamier)
a few drops vanilla (optional)
Whipped cream or mini-marshmallows
Mix the cocoa, sugar, and salt with the water in a medium saucepan and boil gently for 2 minutes. Add the milk and heat slowly just to the boiling point. Beat well with a whisk, and add a few drops of vanilla if desired. Pour into cups and top with your choice of whipped cream or marshmallows. Makes 3 large mugs or 6 small mugs.
