Okay, this is a bit of a confessional. While I love all kinds of hot chocolate – Ryan makes a delectable burnt carmel/ginger/chocolate concoction – I have recently been obsessed with Swiss Miss. Not the packet kind, I’ll have you know, but the bulk kind that comes in a tin. While it most likely retains the exact ingredient ratios of the individual packets, somehow it’s better. It hits all the right nostalgia buttons, and it’s super convenient: just hot water with a milk topper. I’m almost ashamed to admit it, in the food-obsessed culture of the Bay Area, but I seriously love this stuff. Lately I’ve even been adding a bit of cardamom to it. Mmmm Mmmm. Delicious.
