Blogging from A to Z Challenge: H is for Hot Chocolate

Blogging from A to Z April 2017 Challenge

For the first time, I’m participating in the Blogging from A to Z April Challenge! The concept is simple: Each day in April I’ll be blogging on a topic  starting with the letter of the day, beginning with A and progressing to Z by the end of the month. Posts will be short and will relate to my chosen theme: my new coming of age story, Rightfully Ours, released April 1.


H bloggingH is for Hot Chocolate

Growing up, we didn’t have hot chocolate often. In fact, the only time I recall having it is when I’d come inside after playing in the snow. My mother was a great baker, but she never made hot chocolate. It was strictly Swiss Miss packets all the way. Occasionally, a bag of mini marshmallows could be found in the cupboard to top it off.

I had fun writing the “hot chocolate” scene in Rightfully Ours, with Paul and Rachel chasing each other around the table armed with a can of Reddi Wip with a plugged nozzle.

“Rachel used his momentary remorse to her advantage, snatched the whipped cream back, and pointed it at Paul as if it were a loaded weapon. She pressed on the nozzle, releasing a thick stream.

He flung his arm in front of his face, but he was too slow. Whatever had been clogging the can must have dislodged, and the whipped topping hit Paul smack in the face.”

How do you like your hot chocolate? Instant or heated on the stove? Whipped cream or marshmallows? How about a peppermint stick? Ever been involved in an epic whipped cream battle?

  1. I have never had hot chocolate anyway but Swiss Miss or Nestle packets. Though I feel they become a bit watered down so two packets per mug please and thank you! Marshmallows are a must!

  2. I heat mine on the stove now, but it always is a tricky combination of just a bit of water and milk. I like my hot cocoa creamy!

    I tried white hot chocolate, but I’m not a fan. Peppermint and whip cream is ALWAYS welcome. <3

  3. Carolyn I love any fiction, so the chance to see a snippet of yours is fantastic.

    I am laying out the plot of a new historical fiction novel over my 26 A to Z posts. I’d love to have you stop by.

    The Steel Horse Saviors is a story about three civil war veterans who head west in 1866 with their Steam Locomotive to seek their fortune. They encounter a beautiful redhead trying desperately to save her family business that threatens to complicate their plan to escape their past.
