Chill out with my hot hot chocolate recipe
Winter approaches and we huddle in our boxes trying to keep warm...
my solution to break the dull gray monotony....sex. If sex is unavailable, meet chocolate...specifically hot chocolate....wards off the cold, and gives you that little serotonin kick you always love minus some hardcore drugs that fuck with your brain.
SOOOOoooo....I will give you my little hot chocolate recipe...its got a little kick in it to wake you up (and no, its not liquor, and its not coffee)
Now, I personally dont measure anything at all....so eyeball it...your making something for you ...you obviously will taste it....well I hope you dont just forget it on the counter like I sometimes do.
you will need
milk/cream (or substitute with soy product)
cocoa powder (I like the 70% because its just a bit sweet)
cayenne pepper, in powdered form
a stiry thing...whisk! (say it, its fun)
sugar (brown, white,raw, icing, doesnt matter pick what you like. or whatevers left in the cupboard)
and thats all i can think of at the moment...cinnamon if you like it, but cayenne will be good enough
step one: pour milk into pot, turn pot to a medium heat
two: stir in a little bit of cream so that the total liquid is the amount you want to ingest
three: add cocoa powder to taste, and add a bit more!
four: whisk until there is no floaty cocoa islands
five: add a half teaspoon of cayenne pepper to the mix...( if you like super spicy do a full teaspoon...if thats not good enough try throwing some dried red hot peppers)
six: add sugar....a teaspoon or three should do it.
stir, stir stir....WHISK WHISK WHISK
add your face additions like marshmallows, cookies, whipped cream (dont forget to sprinkle some cayenne pepper on top!
hot enough? then pour into mug and serve...num num num
