Spiced hot chocolate version 2


Spiced Hot Chocolate version 1

Here’s another recipe that is close to my favorite with a spiciness of 3 and sweetness of 3:

  • 1 cup milk, 2% fat
  • 30 grams 99% Cacao Scharffenberger Chocolate
  • 15 grams or 1/16 cup confectioners sugar (white granulated, not powdered)
  • 1/4 teaspoon and 1/16 teaspoon cardamom or cinnamon
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground cayenne pepper

I cut back no chocolate and sugar from version 1 of the recipe.

Directions:

  1. Heat milk gently, at no point going higher than 140 degrees fahrenheit.
  2. Add chocolate, sugar, cardamom and chili powder.
  3. wait until partly melted and then periodically mix for 1/4 second pulses with a hand blender until chocolate all dissolved.
  4. Serve at 130.

The use of hand blender has side effect of frothing the milk which makes it have a richer taste, similar to steaming of the milk.
