OPTION 1 : YUM+ TRADITIONAL HOT CHOCOLATE
"We can trace the history of chocolate back thousands of years to the Olmec, Mayan and Aztec cultures of present-day Mexico and Central America." -Institute of Culinary Education
This is one of my favorite treats!!! Although, I can confess that I'm a sucker for CHOCOLATE !!! Hot Chocolate can be altered in so many ways. Check my tips below...
TIPS: You can add hot chili-powder, make it differently either with water or coconut milk/cream, add ground clove powder, or even espresso coffee powder, and for a little *ADULT TREAT...spike-it-up with a little boost of liquor like bourbon, whiskey or even rum.
OPTION 2 : YUM+ QUICK HOT CHOCOLATE
2 1/2 cups of Milk
1/3 - 1/4 cup of Chocolate Chips or Chopped Chocolate Chunks
(Use a premium and/or organic brands -PLEASE READ YOUR LABELS-)
1/2 Tsp of Nutmeg or Cinnamon
1. In a small sauce pan, pour milk, simmer for a while and then pour the chocolate chips or chunks until it melts. You can either use spoon, whisk and/or frother to mix.
2. Let the mixture boil until it looks and feels thicker and velvety but pay attention...closely you don't want it to spill-over. At the end, this is totally optional, add the spices for a nice punch!!!!
Enjoy this quick delicious and simple method that I use when I don't want too do much in the kitchen especially after a busy day! #YumIsoYum
