"It's Like an Angel Peeing on Your Tongue!"

...That is if the angel had a candy cane fetish like I do. What am I talking about?
My new favorite tradition. Ready for this Holiday recipe?
First you take hot chocolate (I make it from scratch: cocoa, sugar, make it the same color as the commercially made Hot cocoa powder, then sprinkle a little salt, add a little water to make it a paste, boil it, then add milk and heat till it's good and hot.)
Put the hot chocolate in a mug and then... be prepared to be amazed at the next and final ingredient... Take a good scoop of peppermint ice cream and drop it into the hot cup of chocolate. It totally blew my mind that I never thought of this before. I think I have a new crush. *sigh*

I love peppermint ice cream. . but the peeing on my tongue thing aint selling it. Even if it is an Angel.

When someone says something tastes good, the literal translation in Dutch is "It's like an angel peeing on my tongue." It's kind of a reference to an earlier post. Don't let it fool you, it's a good thing.

oops, sorry I forgot that one. . .but even if it is supposed to be a good . . . I think it gets lost in the translation, for me anyway. :)
