How about something to warm your insides? If you are like me and this is your first *real* day back at work in awhile you may be dreaming of your vacation and all those comforting cups of hot chocolate you drank while watching movies and reading books. Sigh. Here is my version of a classic, that I made almost daily the last week.
Hot Chocolate(serves 2)
Over medium low heat whisk together cocoa, sugar, salt, cayenne, vanilla and milk. Bring to a simmer. Put 1/2 shot of brandy in each mug and top with the cocoa. Grate nutmeg on top and serve.
