I was introduced to Hot Chocolate as early as pre-teens, thanks to the all the classic novels I read. A typical line would read,
…in the bed with a mug of hot chocolate…
Aah this transports me back to the vintage classic novels with Earls, Dukes, Countesses. A starry-eyed teenager. :)
It is no wonder that I have been wanting to make this divine and comforting hot chocolate at home for the longest time.
And my wish came true this week when I in my usual attempt to use up leftovers had perfect ingredients for a hot chocolate.
You have the perfect Hot chocolate ready for you in a jiffy.
I didn’t have the right mug to drink or shoot a hot chocolate but I guess the flowers made up for the mood.
Absolutely loved the drink – Thumbs Up by my daughter, V and me.
It was rich, creamy, chocolatey and comforting as it should be. All I needed was a Duke. ;)
I even served it chilled to V when he came back from office and he also loved it. I can confidently say that this Hot Chocolate is perfect as Chilled Hot Chocolate too. :D
