It’s the snow plow cocktail recipe and it’s a new one for me.
I found this because I was looking for a hot chocolate cocktail recipe. Not sure why they call it the snow plow. Maybe because of the whipped cream? But don’t most hot chocolate recipes have whipped cream?
Indeed they do.
Maybe they named it the snow plow because after a long day of plowing snow, you will need to have this cocktail to relax.
I am distressed. Why you ask? Because if you look at the photo above, you will see little sprinkles of cocoa on the table.
It was not artfully put there. In fact, I had to force myself NOT to run to the kitchen to get the dish cloth and wipe it off.
I have this problem. Not a big problem mind you, just a little bitty one. I don’t like the mess. I’ve already told you that I don’t like getting my hands greasy.
I will mess my digits up if I have to and often do since I tend to use my hands a lot when I cook.
But as soon as I’m done, I race to the sink and wash my hands.
So, what does that have to do with a little cocoa powder on the table?
Lots. I don’t really like to embellish my photographs with dribbles of chocolate sauce, oozing down cups, dripping, yes dripping on the table. It makes me want to run for the kitchen to fetch that wet cloth.
I see other food bloggers dribbling away, slinging food products on the table and I think, I can’t do it. Power to them but I just can’t do it.
I decided a while ago that I wasn’t going to do things on the food blog that make me uncomfortable, just so my food would look irresistible. And you know what? I’m glad of my decision and I haven’t looked back.
So, that cocoa sprinkling was a test, to see if I changed my opinion. Nope, I didn’t, I will be sprinkle free, dripless and true to myself.
On to the recipe.
