I gave up sweets for Lent.  Some days it’s a real struggle and other days it’s not.  Here’s a tip on how to satisfy your sweet tooth.

When Williams-Sonoma had their big clearance sale recently, I picked up a jar of their Salted Caramel Hot Chocolate. Last night I was feeling like I needed something sweet.  I pretty much cleared out my pantry of anything tempting, but I remembered my cocoa.  It’s classified as a drink and by using skim milk, it’s good for me and a nice treat before bed.

You simmer your milk on the stove, add a few tablespoons of the mix and whisk till combined.  It was very good.  I finished 3/4 of it, then got up to get the laundry.  When I came back Ruthie, the Weinerful, had finished it off.  Sweet dreams for everyone.
