With plenty of bacon and booze on hand, PieHole headquarters is well-stocked to weather the coming snowstorm. Besides these survival staples, though, we also believe that nothing says “snow day” like hot chocolate.
Some folks are fine with emptying the powdery contents of an envelope into a mug and adding hot water. Others prefer a long, slow melting of exotic chocolate with a touch of hot pepper.
PieHole knows there’s no one right way to make hot chocolate. We surveyed some of our area’s finest chefs, bartenders and home cooks to come up with a few recipes for you to try when you’re holed up at home by a snowstorm. If you’ve got a recipe you’d like to share, please feel free to add it to the comments below.
