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.
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)
- Melt the chocolate on a double boiler, stirring continuously.
- Remove from the heat and let the melted chocolate cool for 2-3 minutes, stirring occasionally. Add the condensed milk and mix.
- 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.
- Remove from the heat and serve in a small glass/pots/cups and enjoy.
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?
