My name is Stephanie. I am a mom of two very little boys. I am on a fitness journey to lose some weight. So far i have lost 22 pounds of jiggly fat from working out with beach body dvd's: T25 for 10 weeks and in the middle of p90x3, and 21 day fix meal plan. After joining a Beachbody challenge group and really enjoying all I learned and the accountability and support of people with likewise interests I thought about friends of mine who might benefit. I did become a coach to start a beach babe challenge with my friends. I want to inspire people to be fit, lose weight and eat healthy in my way: sarcastic and fun. So contact me today to join in on one of my challenge groups! Finally get the support you need.
today the sky is dribbling rain, it's chilly and gray. i really don't need an excuse to have a hot cocoa, but the weather has given me an opportunity that i cannot pass up. i think it's time to share with you all my mom's hot cocoa. it is the best hot cocoa i have ever had. i hate to take the romance out of the whole scenario: 'it's made with love', 'it has special secret spices', 'mom learned it from a deceptive society buried beep in the rainforest'. it's really just a simple common sense recipe. i don't think she wrote it. it just tastes so much better then buying packets of hot cocoa and takes no time at all it's seriously worth it to make homemade hot cocoa.

you will need:
baking cocoa powder unsweetened - mom always used hershey's
TADA! insane right?
take your mug measure however much milk fits in it
pour it in a pot
measure out a heaping spoonful of cocoa
sweeten to taste with the sugar
cook over a very low flame
the best thing is that it tastes amazing this way but you can get mad scientist on it.
add vanilla extract, use maple syrup (my fav sweetener), use cream, use skim milk for less calories, top it with whipped cream, add bailey's for a chocolatey drunken night.
