Slow-Cooked Spiced Drinking Chocolate

 For me Christmas is cold-streets, bright lights and hot drinks. Nothing makes me feel cozier than beating the chill with a sip of something warm and soothing.  This festive recipe was a highlight at our Christmas Brunch, but is an easy drink to make on any cold winters eve.  For adult revelers, you can add a splash of rum to grow up this drink.   Enjoy warming up with homemade Spiced Drinking Chocolate. Merry Christmas!
