At the time that I made this (from Barefoot Contessa Family Style), I still had a serious pregnancy-related aversion to chocolate. (This baby had better be awfully cute.) But my friends who were nice enough to try it for me seemed to approve. I had some extra-fancy Scharffen Berger dark chocolate that I bought for practically nothing. The only catch was that it was individually wrapped in 0.5-ounce portions. I put one of those trusty friends to work, helping me unwrap the tiny packages, and it was done in no time.
I think that next year, when I will be decidedly not pregnant, I will have two mugs of hot chocolate every night – one for then, and one for all the missed opportunities this winter.
