Rum Hot Chocolate500mls milk
100gms bittersweet or semisweet
1 cinnamon stick
2 teaspoons honey
1 teaspoon brown sugar,
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 tablespoons dark rum, or to taste (opportunity?)
Pour milk into a saucepan and break chocolate into pieces then add to the milk with a cinnamon stick, honey, and sugar. Heat gently until the chocolate is melted.
Add the vanilla and mix with a small hand whisk; still whisking, add a spoonful of the rum first and taste to see if you want more (now here's a good opportunity!) and add more sugar if you want it sweeter. Take out the cinnamon stick and pour into 2 cappuccino or latte cups. Yum!
History - Chocolate how would we survive without it?
Today, chocolates of every description are legal, unscheduled and readily available over the counter. Maybe chocolate is a healthy drug?. Some 50% of women reportedly claim to prefer chocolate to sex! More than 300 different constituent compounds in chocolate have been identified. Chocolate clearly delivers far more than a brief sugar high.
A small study suggests that eating dark chocolate can lower your blood pressure - a delicious instance in which something that tastes good might, for a change, be good for you, too.
