Sipping a hot toddy to warm your body

February 06, 2002|By Lisa Gutierrez | Lisa Gutierrez,KNIGHT RIDDER/TRIBUNE

Weeks of cold, brisk winter days lie ahead, weather that just begs to be spent in the company of a hot toddy - with or without the alcohol.

A hot toddy can be as simple as coffee with some sinful hot chocolate mix or as involved as a hot drink frothed in a blender.

Hot Chocolate

Makes 1 serving

12 ounces fine chocolate

1 teaspoon butter (not margarine)

1/2 teaspoon vanilla

1 cup half-and-half

whipped cream

mini marshmallows

Melt the chocolate, butter and vanilla in a double boiler. When just smooth, stir in the cream. Top with freshly whipped cream and mini marshmallows.--
