Mayan/Aztec Hot Cocoa

hot cocoaIt is time for hot chocolate..GG has this yummy recipe to share:

The movie, Chocolat includes a scene where the Juliette Binoche pours out a cup of thick decadent hot chocolate and puts a dollop of whipped cream and then sprinkles chili on it.

Yeah baby that kind. Now there are two ways of making this puppy. The slow old fashioned way and I gotta have it NOW way.

Remember this:

as water to chocolate,

as water and chocolate to sugar,

as water, chocolate and sugar to milk,

Hot Chocolate…the slow, authentic way:

1/2 cup water

1/2 cup chocolate powder

1 cup sugar

2 cups 1/2 and 1/2 or milk

1 tsp red chili powder

1/2 tsp salt

1 tsp vanilla

dash of cinnamon

a bowl of sweetened whipped cream

Heat water in a sauce pan and add cocoa, cinnamon, salt, chili powder and sugar cook and stir continually until smooth.

Add the rest of the ingredients and heat through but don’t simmer or boil.

Serve with a dollop of whipped cream and a sprinkle of cinnamon or chili powder on top.

Hot Chocolate the fast I gotta have it NOW way:

one cup of chocolate chips

2 1/2 cups 1/2 and 1/2 or milk

a few dashes of Tabasco

dash of cinnamon

can of whipped cream

Dump the the first four ingredients into a dish and cook for one minute on high and then stir and nuke again for a minute stir again you make need to do a third time until hot and mixed thoroughly.

Pour into cups and cover in whipped cream.
