For years I drank a hot cup of cocoa every day but lately I thought the caffeine was bothering me so I laid off of it for a couple of months. I had some yesterday and what an elevated feeling I received for hours afterwards. What a fool I’ve been. Anyway, chocolate is back in my life and because I try to limit sweets these days, especially sugar, I use a teaspoon unsweetened powdered baking cocoa to a cup of hot water and it’s quite pleasant. Now mind you, I’m not afraid to indulge in some real chocolate candy and I’ve found that even the inexpensive chocolate bars are quite delicious.
