Since the past few evenings have been a little chilly, we suggest to all women to lay back and relax tonight and celebrate this special day with a cup of Wittamer's Belgian Hot Chocolate that you can serve with ingredients you may already have in your home, or that you can pick up at the grocery store. Enjoy this recipe below that we have researched for you from www.davidlebovitz.com:
Wittamer’s Belgian Hot Chocolate
Makes four to six servings
1 litre milk
8 ounces (230g) bittersweet or semisweet chocolate, finely chopped
4 ounces (115g) milk chocolate, finely chopped
tiny pinch of salt
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- Warm about one-third of the milk, with the chopped chocolates and salt, stirring until the chocolate is melted.
- Whisk in the remaining milk, heating until the mixture is warmed through.
- Add the cinnamon.
- Use a hand-held blender, or a whisk, and mix the hot chocolate until it’s completely smooth
- Serve very warm.
This may be served with a poof of whipped cream and chocolate curls.
Note: To add variety to this recipe, you may replace some of the liquid portion of the servings with some strong coffee or you may add a hit of liqueur such as cognac
