I was lamenting the fact that we didn’t have the ingredients for me to whip up some hot chocolate after our Epic Snow Shoveling Adventure, but then I realized I had a tea which is even better! This one is Harney & Sons Chocolate tea and Florence tea mixed, with some mini chocolate chips thrown in for good measure. So rich, but you can taste the tea too, which is utterly delightful. The real bonus is no horrid sugar crash afterwards – that always happens to me after hot chocolate and I am happy to avoid it!
I spent the day on friday at Hershey Park in Pennsylvania. The supposed reason we went was to ride the rollercoasters (we did all 10 that were open!! The rollersoaker in the waterpark was not running for the season yet) but I ain’t gonna lie – I love going to Chocolate World. There you will find all the chocolate Hershey makes (including many things never seen in my local stores) in enormous quantities, all so perfectly fresh. We brought home some serious loot!
Last night it was our task to eat this enormous Reeses bar which I’ve never seen in a store with peanuts and wafers and a sort of peanut brittle in it (so good!) – and I decided to simply go for broke with the pairing – the most chocolate-y tea in my collection. Some half and half and sugar to just make the whole thing as decadent as possible.
The tea held up nicely to the strong flavors, and helped with the Peanut Butter Phenomenon – you know how peanut butter sticks to the roof of your mouth?!?
Great pairing – it was the equivalent of going on a roller coaster – a short, intense burst of WOW!!!
Saturday night caffeinated dessert tea ahoy! I haven’t had this one in a long time and I’ve missed it! Adult hot chocolate when you add creme and sugar. Yum.
Made this for a second night in a row. Yup, must mean I really, really like it! I love how it still has the same sort of Florence like flavor, only intensified.
Oooheeee this is so good and rich. Half and half and just a little sugar and you have something very special for dessert.
