Spice and Chocolate
Source: flickr.com

From time to time I feel the need to take my blog title seriously. Today is one of those days.

A few weeks ago I watched the movie Chocolat. Great movie by the way, with a lot of that delicious chocolate (J. Depp included). But…there was something in the movie that I just had to try: Spicy hot chocolate! I must say…it tasted delicious.

So, DO try this at home!

All you need is:

– Enough milk to fill one or two cups
– a pinch of chili powder (If you’re going for the real deal: you can also use one fresh red chili which you warm with the milk)
– a pinch of vanilla
– 1/2 teaspoon of cinnamon (powder)
– 50g of dark chocolate or 50g of cocoa powder 

Optional: 
– sugar
– whipped cream

So I was in my old-hollywood-movie-mood again. As I watched some movies I realised, some things will never change. Ofcourse technology had changed 180 degrees from 1950 till now. And sure… the material life as we know it was unthinkable back in the days. But certain things will always stay the same…:

Men will be men (Some like it hot, 1959)

Diamonds & pearls are still a girl’s best friend (80% of the movies from let’s say…1920 till now)

– We still like good dancing… (Fred Astaire / Gene Kelly  movies)

– And great sense of humour (Laurel & Hardy, Charlie Chaplin)

– Sense of great fashion style (Audrey Hepburn, Elizabeth Taylor, Grace Kelly and many more..)
