Chocolat(e) Chaud

Happy New Year

Chocolat Chaud – Hot Chocolate is pure comfort in a cup. It's the perfect way to retire for the day. This has been in my diary for a very long time. I have always thought that Cocoa Powder/Drinking Chocolte would be good enough for Hot Chocolate.

This is heavenly. The richness from the melted chocolate is...... Divine.

Semi-sweet or Milk Chocolate, chopped – ½ cup
Orange Zest – 1 tsp (optional)
Cinnamon Powder – ½ tsp
Milk – 2 cups
Sugar – to taste

Grated Chocolate
Whipped Cream (optional)
Orange Zest


Boil milk over a slow flame. When warm, mix in the chopped chocolate, stirring all the while.
Stir in the orange zest, cinnamon, and mix until the chocolate mixture is smooth.
You can also use a hand blender for a smooth and frothy hot chocolate.
Pour the spiced hot chocolate into cups and add sugar if needed.
Garnish each cup with a spoonful of whipped cream (if using), grated chocolate and orange zest.

Sending to delight kids at Valli's event!
