Well, as winter is comming, and so is the rain, some hot coco sounds really good. i was wondering if anyone had a recipie for it (besides nesquik and milk). I was searching for some on the internet and found this...
Angelina’s Hot Chocolate
The Angelina Cafe in Paris, open since 1903, serves a thick hot chocolate version in demitasse cups with a tiny dollop of mascarpone and whipped cream. They are famous for making hot chocolate from melted chocolate bars. It is incredibly easy to prepare by mixing chocolate shavings with hot water. You can serve it in small cups or in 17th-century style chocolate pots and demitasse cups such as those sold in gourmet shops.

6 ounces fine-quality semisweet or bittersweet chocolate, chopped
1/4 cup water, room temperature
3 tablespoons hot water
3 cups hot milk, divided
Sugar to taste
Whipped cream, if desired

In a double boiler over low heat, combine chocolate and 1/4 cup water until melted, stirring occasionally; stir until smooth.

Remove top of double boiler pan from. Whisk in 3 tablespoons hot water. Pour into pitcher or divide among individual 4 mugs. Either stir 3/4 cup hot milk into each mug or serve milk in a separate pitcher. Pass sugar and whipped cream in separate bowls; add to taste.

Makes 4 servings.

Foud this, and it sounds good, might have to make it to see what is it like.

Happy Holidays,

Good idea, dude! I adapted the above recipe to compensate for my laziness/gluttony:

6 ounces leftover Halloween chocolate chopped up in a bowl
Added a bit of water
Nuked at 70% power for 45 seconds to just melted, stirred together
Warmed up some milk on the stove
Added melted chocolate
Stirred some more
Decided more chocolate was needed so I put in a couple scoops of Nestle chocolate powder
Dumped in some sugar
drop of vanilla
Stirred again (with vigor!)

Voila! Chocolate buzz is humming now! Thanks for the idea!
