The past week the weather has been a little cold. My son told me that he really wanted some hot chocolate to heat him up. I was too happy to oblige, as I love hot chocolate. I went to all of the stores around me and every single hot chocolate mix that I found, contained sugar and sucralose (an artificial sweetener). I don’t have any issue with people using artificial sweeteners, but my son and I both get an off taste from them. I can’t explain it, but it just does not taste right to us. So after a quick scan of three supermarket aisles, I decided that the commercial brands were out. Therefore, I had to make my own mix. Come to find out, making homemade hot chocolate is quite simple. Mix a few ingredients, add some hot water and boom. Homemade Hot Chocolate! The homemade hot chocolate mix, is simple and delicious!
One of my favorite breakfast meals is biscuits and sausage gravy. I just love tender biscuits covered in thick and creamy sausage gravy. I prefer a spicy sausage in mine, but with the kids eating my food these days, I have to opt for mild. Sad but they will grow up soon. Then I can get back to the spicy stuff. The great thing about this recipe, is that it works with any type of sausage that you enjoy!
