The local fancy-schmancy grocery store is only good for one thing: really, really good chocolate milk. Even Mormon missionaries can’t resist when I offer them some*. However, today I made a special trip only to find that the store only had regular milk and regular milk sucks. I prefer to get my calcium only with added flavorings.
However, it is possible that I can do my own flavor magic and step up the chocolate milk to butter-rum chocolate milk. I could have just used real butter and rum, but I have these flavorings and they’re going to get used for something, dammit.
Here is the secret to hot chocolate mixes: they are essentially half sugar and half cocoa. That is all you need to know.
*If anyone knocks on my door in order to evangelize, it is always my policy to offer them something to drink, no matter what religion they are selling. No one has ever taken me up on my offer unless chocolate milk was on the table. BONUS: people tend to leave faster for some reason, hopefully not because they think I’m going to poison them and put them on top of the stack of Jehovah’s Witnesses in the basement.
