With that in mind, I'd like to share with you how to make your hot chocolate packet into something that tastes much better.
In Haiti, at least among the sisters, we don't just boil water and add it to the mix - or microwave it in the mug, for that matter. There is more to it. When I first tasted it here, I thought it must be some special Haitian chocolate, as it didn't taste like any hot chocolate packet I'd ever opened.
As it turns out, making it is simple.
First step: Fill a saucepan with water.
Add some cinnamon bark, light the gas, and simmer throughout Evening Prayer.

One final step: add condensed milk, as you would to coffee.
A good end to a good day.
