Polar Express

Christmas is my absolute most favorite time of year!  If it's Christmas related I want to do it.  So last night Sammy, his parents, and myself went to ride the Polar Express in Bryson City NC.  It was an absolute blast! If you have kids and live anywhere near Bryson City you must take them to ride the train. They try to make it as much like the movie as possible. You sing carols, get to meet Santa who gives the small children a bell, you get to listen to the book being read aloud, and my most favorite...they serve you the BEST hot chocolate that I have EVER tasted! I would go and ride the train again just to get that hot chocolate!  I was telling my one of my best friends about it. She googled it and found the recipe.  According to the www here's how to make the worlds best polar express hot chocolate:

1.5 cups of Heavy Cream
1 Can of Sweetened Condensed Milk (14oz)
2 Cups of bittersweet chocolate chips
6 Cups of milk
1 tsp Vanilla extract
In a regular pot over low heat, combine all of the ingredients. Stir regularly for 30-40 minutes or until chocolate is fully melted.
I haven't tried this myself yet but if it's anywhere near as good as what they had on the train, you will LOVE IT!
Sammy thought it was hysterical when he put whipped cream on my nose so of coarse he had to have a picture. LOL!
