Our fall book club selection, The Silent Gift by Michael Landon, Jr., and Cindy Kelley, centered around the tumultuous journey of single mother Mary and her deaf-mute son, Jack. Several times throughout the novel Jack drank hot chocolate, so I thought sipping hot cocoa was a must for our discussion of the book. I prepared this recipe for minty hot chocolate, which got great reviews from all the ladies. And I think it tasted even better served in custom-printed mugs from Discount Mugs -- a special favor for each member of our book club.
Still to come, recipes and our new winter book club selection.
