Landmark Hot Chocolate

“With or without a nip of rum, my hot chocolate recipe has been a Wisconsin winter warmer for years. When the toboggan hills are calling, I skip the whipped cream and take a thermos to go. It’s always a hit and it ensures nobody is left out in the cold!” —Mark Phillips, Bayfield, Wisconsin
