Karen, there are links embedded in each photo that take you to the recipe page. I'm so sorry we didn't make this more obvious! Thank you so much for bringing this to our attention and we'll change it for next time.

If you love hot chocolate, You simply MUST TRY this new rendition on an old time favorite! Find yourself some organic cacao nibs, I just recently found a superb source from Hawaii (see link below), and grind the nibs with a can of coconut milk, adding slowly, to your blender. If you don't have a blender, use your coffee bean grinder, and make a fresh ground powder from the cacao nibs. It sends off the most amazing aroma, and the chocolate taste is distinctly fresh! For two cups of hot chocolate, I add about a 1/2cup of cacao nibs, to one 14oz. can of coconut milk. I also add another two full cans of water, and also 1/4cup of fresh sugar. There is a great new option for coconut sugar...delicious and nutritious. Bring all that together in a small saucepot, and slowly heat for about 40 minutes. Enjoy your coconut hot chocolate with the small bits of nibs to munch on at the end of the drink. It's an added treat, unlike the marshmellows gone first from long ago. This kind of hot chocolate is great anytime, all the time, because it is that good for us! p.s. try a little chili powder and cinnamon, to add a little beloved spice.

In NZ Lemon Honey Ginger is a favourite winter drink. One I think would be perfect for the US winter is Bees Blessing's Mulled Lemon & Honey - organic lemons, NZ honey, plus spices such as cinnamon, cloves etc. Soooo delish and warming. Check out www.beesblessing.co.nz for more yummy flavours!
