«Coffee, chocolate, men … . Some things in life are just better rich.»
I recently discovered a taste for hot chocolate. Usually using only cocoa powder with hot water. Then there is cocoa with valerian (marketed as «relaxation chocolate», a name well-deserved), which works very well if you additionally add cocoa powder.
But what put these hot chocolates on another level was adding a (rather expensive) piece of chocolate. Like this dark chocolate with some chocolate filling:
Sounds strange, but works very well. It’s a bit like being used to drink wine, and then drinking brandy. Or eating some cheap chocolate and then tasting an expensive filled chocolate. Related yes, but on a whole different level. A chocolate hit that stays with you for a while.
BTW, talking about drinking chocolate, adding white chocolate to hot milk also tastes surprisingly well (use the non-crunchy one):
Happy … trying out. 🙂
