A different kind of winter warmer

In light of the recent frigid weather, this sounds like a very tasty treat. It is an "adult hot chocolate" recipe, as found in the latest Sam Adams e-newsletter. If anyone tries it out, let us know what you think!

Samuel Adams®
Adult Hot Chocolate
by Chef Andrew Urbanetti

This is something that will keep you warm all the way til summer is here!

2 bottles Samuel Adams® Cream Stout
6 tablespoons brown sugar
4oz semi-sweet chocolate (chips will work)
½ teaspoon chili powder
Raspberries (optional)
Sugar (to rim glasses)

Instructions: In a saucepan, bring beer and brown sugar to a gentle boil, cooking for about 3 minutes. Over a low heat, whisk in chocolate and chili powder. Pour into 4 sugar rimmed glasses and serve warm!

And don't worry. According to the chef, the chili only brings out the chocolate and beer flavors. You won't taste it!
