For those times when you just can’t (or don’t want to) spend $3 for a Starbucks confection (yummy as it is), go to your nearest neighborhood Borders.
They have a drink called the Cocoa Trio – and it is amazing.
For $1.55 you can get a “kid’s size” (a little bit smaller than Starbuck’s “tall” size) and it’s a delight in a cup. Rich hot cocoa, topped by a mound of whipped cream, drizzled with chocolate syrup, sprinkled with lots of white chocolate shavings, and, just because there isn’t enough chocolatey goodness yet, there’s a bar of solid chocolate stuck into the whipped cream. It will melt into a delicious goop on the bottom of your cup.
Go. Drink. Be merry. You will not be sorry.
