The Perfect Gift
One Christmas many years ago, I was a newlywed without a lot of money to spend on gift for my family and friends. Instead of buying a lot of expensive presents, I whipped up a chocolate sampler and sent one to each household.
The box included the mocha brownies shown here, my famous homemade hot chocolate recipe, and several other special treats.
I made mine for Christmas, and they were a huge hit. A new tradition was born! But, you could also make these for Valentines Day. It is the perfect gift for any chocolate lover!
