I agree with DW, thanks, but don't ever make it again...
You couldn't drink ore than a cup every six months without becoming addicted.

It's for the "True" chocolate lover. It's made to sip, and then to swirl it around in your mouth, making sure it touches every part of your tongue. You should place your nose over the cup, to breath in the rich, chocolate aroma. See it, taste it, touch it, smell it. Experience this with all of your senses (except maybe hearing).

Children, step back. You aren't developed enough to appreciate the texture and flavor yet. Wait until you're at least 18.

On my way to bed by way of the kitchen.

I know people who use the recipe on the box of cocoa, but substitute water for the milk and then add cream.

Thanks!!!

Luckily, I have lots of dried milk, thanks to the monthly commodities charity and a couple of friends who give me theirs. I also use creamer, so it looks like a can of cocoa needs to go on the grocery list.

I rarely buy sweets, so I usually had kept a box of packaged mixes, but hated that to get the strong chocolate flavor, I had to deal with sickeningly sweet.

I figured cocoa would be the answer, but just wanted to confirm it with my DC friends. Thanks for the quick responses!

I think what I"ll do for now is just add cocoa to the overly sweet Quik. That'll keep me in hot chocolate for months.

A tiny sprinkling of "Quick" looks great on a café au lait, cappuccino, or other coffee pale enough for it to show, or on top of whipped cream on coffee It tastes much nicer than a sprinkle of cocoa.

Hmm, I wonder if it would work on chocolate truffles instead of the dusting of cocoa.

Every morning before heading out the door to school, my mother made it the same way with Hershey's cocoa and evap. milk. Today, when I have a hankering for a cup of cocoa, I still do it her way. I keep evap. milk on hand for such an event. Winter is coming. Time to start drinking more cocoa.

Ingredients:
10 oz. half 'n half
1 ea. 3.5 oz bar of Lindt 70% cacao dark chocolate bar
1 ea. 3.5 oz, bar Dove dark chocolate bar
a pinch of cinamon

Heat the half 'n half in a double boiler (or in a sauce pan over low heat if you can do it without scorching the bottom). Break up the chocolate and whisk it in until it is completely blended. Stir in the cinnamon and remove from the heat. Pout it into a large mug and escape to Nervana.

You will be consuming about 1200 calories, and spend about $4 for this velvety smooth hot chocolate. But you will die very happy.

This does sound decadent

Don't listen to him Kylie. He is just trying to put the weight on all us girls. His recipe is beyond decadent. It is deadly. It will kill your desire for any other chocolate drink. You will find yourself walking through the Outback barefoot in search of that drink.

Have you ever dissolved a Milky Way bar into hot milk?
