Hot Chocolate

I might have mentioned it once or twice or a thousand times - I am a chocoholic.

And one of the best ways to satisfy the chocolate addiction is in the form of hot chocolate. Thick, rich, dark, piping hot chocolate. mmmmmm...The darker the better, the thicker the better, the richer the better. And I think the use of honey adds a special flavour / aroma to the whole which plain old sugar cannot match. Of course, the dark part depends on your taste, so you can use less dark or milk chocolate as well. My husband sometimes prefers even a white chocolate, but thats somehow not my cuppa tea (to use a mixed metaphor!)

And when its cold and raining outside (as it is now) - there's nothing better to warm me up than a cup of hot chocolate, cooped up warmly in my bed under a thick blanket with a nice book and soft music playing in the background.

I hope you enjoy your hot choc as much as I did mine :-)


Ingredients

100 gram - dark chocolate 80 % 
1 1/2 cup -  hot water
4 tsp - honey (adjust according to your taste)
2 tsp - cream

Method
  1. Melt the chocolate with honey on a double boiler
  2. Add the hot water to the melted chocolate and blend well. Cook for 2-3 minutes, add the cream and cook again for a couple of minutes, stirring continuously.
  3. Serve immediately.
Serves  2



Enjoy!
