hot chocolate [Jan. 5th, 2009|03:24 pm]
Doug Ayen
1.5 cup milk
2 tbls sugar
4 - 6 tbls cocoa powder (use the good stuff)
Grated rind from 1 tangerine
1 tsp vanilla extract

In a pan, combine the milk, sugar, and grated rind. Bring to a gentle boil and remove from heat. In an appropriately sized mug, make a paste from the cocoa powder and some of the milk, stirring until lump-free. Pour in the rest of the milk mixture through a strainer to remove any annoying tangerine rind bits, and stir until well mixed.

Drink, and enjoy.

Mnnn. Chocolate.

I've never tried the tangerine rind thing; that sounds well worth doing (of course, real hot chocolate is my comfort drink at work. Cause, well, yum.

Worth trying if you haven't: hot chocolate made with good dark (or unsweetened) chocolate rather than powdered cocoa. The cocoa butter definitely changes the flavor a lot, and not for the worse.
