I am not a morning person, but a real night owl. People who know me, will nod approvingly and those who follow me on social media have seen my midnight inspiration brainwaves. So the problem for a night person is not the fact that they meet their bed too late on a daily basis. No, in fact there is more than one problem: the morning starts too soon, there are too less hours in a day and inspiration waves always come between 11PM and 1AM. Night persons will totally understand these excuses strong and valid arguments.
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
– whipped cream
