Christmas morning can get busy between gift opening and testing, but don't let breakfast be an afterthought. Celebrity chef Emeril Lagasse shared his kicked-up holiday breakfast recipes on "Good Morning America" to make your holiday as delicious as possible. Try his recipe for Triple Chocolate Hot Cocoa below and turn your morning meal into the star of the show.
In a medium saucepan combine the milk, cream, orange zest and espresso powder and bring mixture just to a simmer. Remove from the heat and all at once add the chopped chocolate. Cover the pan and allow to sit, undisturbed, for 2 minutes. Uncover and add the vanilla and salt and whisk until the chocolate is completely melted and smooth. Remove the orange zest and serve the cocoa hot, in warmed mugs.
