Try This! Thursday - Mocha Hot Chocolate

I don't know about you, but it has been freeeeeezing where I live. Of course, not as cold as those mid-western states. If we ever saw 16 inches of snow or -25 degrees, the entire state of South Carolina would self-destruct. Nevertheless, there is nothing better than having a nice cup of hot chocolate in these cold days ahead. So, when I ran across this mocha hot chocolate recipe, I just had to get you all to try this!!
