Chocolate being a proven mood lifter it's definitely not a surprise that we crave for it when the weather is dark and gloomy. Be it the chilly winter nights or the rainy gray days every time you are home bound you find solace in a mouthful of this delicious treat.
Drinking chocolate from a specific brand that comes in a bluish purplish tin container was a big part of my childhood. Maa made cakes, sondesh, homemade chocolates and even sprinkled it on Gajar ka halwa for the stubborn kid in my brother but never did it find it's way to what it is intended for. That creamy luscious cocoa coloured heaven that gives you a brown mustache below your nose was discovered by me at a friend's place. Her mother served us each a cup of this luscious drink on a very cold evening in December, while we were busy preparing for our exams. I instantly fell in love with it and collected the recipe from her.
