Hot Chocolate Cookies

I love a good cookie any time of the year.

These though, due to the inclusion of hot chocolate, make me feel Christmas-ey; or maybe just winter-y.

Either way, while making them, I started thinking about some memorable Christmas/Winter memories.
Like the time we were all sledding at a hospital (they had a huge hill out front. They don't allow it anymore, poo.) and my dad had a friend of my mother's on his lap.
The idea was, you were supposed to roll out of the sled before you hit the bottom of the hill. She panicked. My dad couldn't move because she didn't. One broken leg later (hey, at least we were already at the hospital) and those sledding days were done.

Another year, we were driving from my grandmother's house to my uncle's on Christmas day. A car backed out of their driveway right in front of my hubby. He started yelling at the car about not paying attention.
Then we realized there was no driver in the car. It had slipped into gear and just slid out of the driveway. We stopped at the house and knocked on the door. The guy came running to collect his car from the middle of the road.

Ahh...cold weather memories!
