After the cold, brisk walk from the metro to my apartment, the only way to warm up is with a delicious cup of hot chocolate. Having tasted the delights on offer at Angelina’s salon de thé, powdered chocolate from a plastic box just doesn’t cut it anymore. So now I’m a fully fledged hot chocolate snob I’ve started making myself and flatmate Lucy real chocolat chaud, the way the French make it.
Heat up a couple of chunks of dark chocolate with a tablespoon of water. Add your milk and whisk. Then heat up again. Sweeten with a sprinkle of brown sugar. Et Voilà un chocolate chaud…pour les soirees froid.
