Hot Chocolate Recipe


I know its ridiculous, the temperature outside is 75 and all I wanted to drink this evening was a cup mug of hot chocolate, like its snowing outside.

Recipe for my Spiced Hot Chocolate

Add a cup of milk to a sauce pan.
To it add 10 - 15 semi sweet chocolate chips. I use Ghirardelli chips.
Sprinkle 1/4th a teaspoon of cinnamon powder and 1/4th a teaspoon of cardamom powder.
Warm the milk on low heat. Continue stirring the ingredients.
Don't bring the milk to a boil but until its very hot.
Garnish with the usual suspects - cinnamon powder and grated chocolate.

Lately I have been watching a lot of TV (hence the MIA), especially those movies that airs a lot during this time of the year like Harry Potter, Miracle on the 34th Street and the likes. This weekend I saw "You've Got Mail"on ACM (American Classic Movies) on tv for the one hundredth time and for the one hundredth time, I felt bad when Meg Ryan closed her book store. Sigh !!!

Its Patty's last Weekend party for the year. Do stop by her virtual party.

It is been 35F maximum here. Typical evening it is 30 and feels like 20F. But life is usual for us. We are still doing what we do otherwise.

Thanks for a simple recipe. Even I can make hot chocolate now. :)))
