On a cold day, nothing could beat my mother-in-law Sandy’s hot cocoa. The creamer gives it a thicker texture than expected. Sandy gave us a special jar with a handwritten message to hold the hot cocoa mix so we would have it on hand all of the time. Now, when we make a cup on a brisk day, it reminds me of how warm and caring Sandy was.
