If it weren't so late, I'd go to the store now to buy that mix! Great write-up. Was that Mannie, Moe, or Jack you used to boil the water in?
Ryan - you've got to admit that looks better than soup. Also, if you're going to make that kind of mess in your ti cup, you might as well simmer the soup in it first without going the freezerbag route, so 2 challenges are solved at once here - thoroughly cooked HarmonyHouse soup, and a warm chocolate dessert afterwards.
