Dark Chocolate Suckao

I first tasted Chocolate Suckao at the Harrods Chocolate Bar in London - we had had a hard day of window shopping through the streets of London, and were pretty tired. Harrods was the last planned stop of the day, and somewhere in the middle of the third floor, we came accross this chocolate bar. It was love at first sight - or rather, love at first sip. Be it the dark chocolate suckao I tried or the white one my husband did, the taste was out of this world.


In fact, years later, we still make sure that every time we are in London, we take a quick pit stop at the Harrods Chocolate Bar. If there is a bigger choc-fanatic than me, its my brother-in-law. So whenever we are in the Harrods Chocolate Bar, I always miss him and hope he would be there with us.


Suckao- a concentrated chocolate shot is made up of two words. Suck + Cacao. It is drunk through a metal straw which also serves as a stirring spoon.

 I have tried to create my own version of the Harrods Suckao, dedicated to my BIL...hope you enjoy it as much as we did. 




Ingredients 


50 gram - dark chocolate 70 % , roughly chopped 
1 tbsp - condensed milk, sweetened
6 tbsp - water
1/2 tbsp - vanilla sugar (adjust according to your taste)


Method 

  1. Melt the chocolate on a double boiler, stirring continuously.
  2. Remove from the heat and let the melted chocolate cool for 2-3 minutes, stirring occasionally. Add the condensed milk and mix. 
  3. Retransfer to the heat(on a double boiler), add water and sugar and mix, stirring continuously for a minute. Everything should be properly mixed and the chocolate should have a falling consistency.
  4. Remove from the heat and serve in a small glass/pots/cups and enjoy.
Makes




    You can make the suckao from white chocolate, milk chocolate, dark chocolate...any chocolate:)

    Its almost pure melted chocolate...need I say more about the taste? 





    Enjoy!

    55. Darling, this is one of my favourite chocolate drinks. There is a café called the Pond in South of France that serves suckao with a twist, they add brandy to it. I wish I had one in front of me right now. Fabulous photos, I can just taste it simply by looking at the photos.

      Love & Hugs
