Hot Chocolate.  When it’s cold outside, a cup of hot chocolate is the best.   Choose from bags of thick Spanish hot chocolate mix or French hot chocolate squares on a stick that get swirled around in hot milk and melt into chocolate heaven.

Kopke 1987 tawny portA half bottle of 1987 Kopke Colheita tawny port ($34.00).  This is a fantastic treat, especially on a chilly winter evening, with flavors of caramel and butterscotch, vanilla and toast.  Elegant, complex, with nuances of honey have a lengthy and satisfying finish.
