Who Wants Hot Chocolate?!

On a cold winter’s night, what is better than a steaming cup of homemade hot chocolate? Not much, unless it’s homemade hot chocolate with lots of candy toppings! That is what everyone at Old Orchard Apartments enjoyed last night at the Hot Chocolate Bar in the Leasing Office. We had homemade hot chocolate and homemade white hot chocolate, which turned out to be the sleeper hit with the Catonsville crowd. To adorn their tasty treat, folks added marshmallows, whipped cream, toffee, peppermints, peanut butter chips and even more white chocolate (chips). Fun was had by all, young and not so young. It was a great evening of Hot Chocolate Fellowship.
