My husband grew up eating warm, buttered toast dipped in steaming mugs of hot chocolate. When I first heard about this tradition, I thought it sounded kind of strange. But I was hooked after just one bite. The crisp toast soaks up the hot chocolate and becomes something so much more than the sum of its parts.
This is our family’s favorite treat after a day in the snow or a brisk night of Christmas caroling.
- Toast thick slabs of bread (we prefer white bread for this) and spread generously with butter.
- Prepare hot chocolate. My family loves Paula Deen’s recipe.
- Dip and enjoy!
