coffee
hot chocolate


Not coffee, but proper hot chocolate, made to Angelina's of Paris recipe.


ETA As requested, the recipe (adapted from Angelina's original)

I made it this way, as I don't have a double saucepan and didn't want to make 3 cups as in the original recipe. For one cup of chocolate:


2oz dark (70%) chocolate
About 1/8 cup water
3/4 cup of milk


Melt chocolate in water in microwave (about 1 min)
Add 1 tsp boiling water and stir.


Meanwhile heat and froth milk.


Add hot liquid milk to chocolate, stir and heat in microwave until piping hot.


Add frothed milk/cream/sugar to taste.

It's ovely with no added sugar or cream, like drinking melted chocolate. Just right for finishing the third book in the Larkrise to Candleford trilogy. Small Favour, the new Harry Dresden, arrived last week and I've had to hide it to stop myself taking a peek until I finish Candleford Green.

Oh yummy - but drat I don't have any good chocolate in the house at the moment. I'll have to go and get some (great excuse *g*).

I caved in and started the Dresden Book - it's very good so far :)

Mmm... nummy looking. I read the first book Lark Rise to Candleford and enjoyed it immensely.

Then you've read the trilogy. Larkrise to Candleford is all three books published in one volume. There is a sequel 'Still Flows the Stream' that was published posthumously, in 1947

Yum.

Possibly a touch decadent though! (is that ever a bad thing?)
