This is my 3rd item on my list


I do not go to her site often enough and what a site full of class and such good taste.

pink peppercorn hot chocolate
Winter is a time to be cozy, curl-up and cuddle. It becomes exquisitely delicious and enticing with hot chocolate. It should be rich and aromatic, with a lingering thickness which remains on the palate just a second longer than expected. Something to be savoured.It may as well be a tad spicy, but a delicately sweet and subtle spice. A cure for all that ails you; affectionately known as drinkable chocolate goop, but ultimately much more refined. My favourite hot peppercorn hot chocolate (Serves 1-2)1/2 cup whole milk1/2 tsp cornstarch60g, 70% dark chocolate, shaved or finely chopped1 tbsp honey1/2 tsp best quality vanilla extract1/2 tsp crushed pink peppercorns1. Pre-heat cups with hot water, to help the hot chocolate remain hot.2. In a small saucepan, bring the milk and cornstarch to a simmer over medium-low heat.3. Lower the heat, and whisk in the chocolate, honey, vanilla and peppercorns, until velvety smooth.4. Empty the water from the cups, and dry.5. Pour the hot chocolate into cups, and garnish with additional whole peppercorns, or whipped cream. Enjoy!

Every day I drive by the store here in Calgary that sells these Pink peppercorns
