There are few things that say "I love you", "I made this special for you" and give people that warm and fuzzy feeling - a cup of homemade hot cocoa does just that. In this case it's triple chocolate hot cocoa so that must mean you really, really, really love the beneficiary of this treat (ehm, yourself).
Milk chocolate, dark chocolate and white chocolate all blended together in one mug. How can you ever drink regular hot chocolate again?
