      The smores hot chocolate looks amazing. A good white chocolate or vanilla recipe would be awesome on here too! (I’m addicted to the white hot cocoa from Dunkin, it tastes like melted marshmallows.)

        I’m going to have to try the white hot cocoa from Dunkin then. I’m a freak for marshmallows.

      My go to work bad day drink: fake mocha. One hot chocolate packet, one Starbucks via packet, powdered french vanilla creamer (if I’ve remembered it), and hot water. Top with marshmellows. It’s yummy, delicious, and office-easy and quick. I always have everything necessary (except maybe the powdered creamer) to make it in my desk.

        You are basically a chemistry genius. That sounds so freaky delicious.
