There's really no need for a play-by-play here. I'll let the pictures speak for themselves. But first, confession time. I always have to think when I'm spelling the word chocolate. Does that ever happen to you? Is there a word that always stumps ya? Seriously, it's like I'm back in second grade and I have to sound it out every time I go to spell it. Maybe it's because the way I pronounce it isn't "correct." Did you know that there are actually three syllables in there? But nah, the Jersey in me only makes it two. Chock-let. You got a problem with that? Well pronounce it however you want, I'm sure we can all agree on one thing: it's pretty awesome stuff.
My friend Lisa made that hot chocolate up there in her Vitamix. It was FANTASTIC. She just threw some "stuff" in the blender and went to town--light sweet cream, water, cocoa, a packet of powder dream whip and a spoon of dark chocolate frosting (now you know why it was so good!) She just eyeballed everything.
Helpful hint: I've found the best way to bake cookies is on a Pampered Chef stone (I use the large bar pan, round pizza stone, and/or the cookie stone). The cookies bake evenly and never burn. So if you're having trouble with all your cookies looking like they're "chocolate," try using a stone. You can thank me later when you win first place at the county fair.
Have a delicious day!
