TIP OF THE DAY: Cocoa Cup Rimmers
Celebrate today with a hot cup of cocoa.
|December 12th is National Cocoa Day. Take your presentation to the next level with cocoa rimmers, which add an extra touch of flavor and a festive look to the cup.
You can buy rimmers just for cocoa, but cocktail rimmers for chocolate martinis, espresso martinis, peppermintinis and orange blossoms are essentially the same product.
Or, make your own rimmer by grinding bittersweet chocolate bars or coffee, butterscotch hard and peppermint hard candies (or candy canes) to a fine gravel. You can mix ingredients or offer them as separate flavors.
Then, just moisten the rim of the cup or mug with water, dip it onto a plate of rimmer powder to coat, add the hot cocoa and serve. Yes, you certainly can top it with whipped cream!
