New color patterns and homemade hot chocolate

Sarah Bocket

Creating new warm soft color patterns with an ivory base while drinking homemade hot chocolate makes for a very nice Saturday evening. I'm going to get started on this new set of colors very very soon. It's time to shake things up a bit color-wise and I think all the dot fans will love it! Just picture those sections above inside a bowl with a glossy finish.... now that's what I'm dreaming about tonight with my tummy filled with chocolate.

I whipped up this simple hot chocolate recipe I found with a quick internet search on It's pretty good and definitely rich, but not super sweet. I love it when I have all the ingredients at home to make whatever comes to my mind.

1 cup water
2 (1 ounce) squares BAKER'S Unsweetened Baking Chocolate
1/2 cup sugar
3 cups milk (just used the non-fat I had around)
1 teaspoon vanilla
threw in a hand full of semi-sweet chocolate chips
added more milk to tame it a bit after taking a few sips

- Place water and chocolate in heavy medium saucepan; cook on low heat until chocolate is completely melted and mixture is well blended, stirring constantly with wire whisk. Add sugar; mix well.
- Bring to boil on medium-high heat. Boil 3 min., stirring constantly. Gradually add milk, stirring with wire whisk until well blended. Stir in vanilla. Reduce heat to medium.
- Cook until mixture is heated through, stirring occasionally.
