With the New Year comes many new “healthy” resolutions.

For me I am always looking to stay on track & to make better choices but…

I have a sweet tooth & I REALLY love chocolate!

As often as I can I will choose dark over milk chocolate,

it makes me feel less guilty & I  actually like it better.

Being that Hot Chocolate is a staple in my house in the winter,

I thought I would try to make it a little healthier,

here is a recipe for  Spiced Dark Hot Chocolate.

It is easy & so CRAZY delicious!
