On a chilly day – nothing beats a homemade cup of cocoa or hot chocolate.
This exquisite image below from Maja Redlin’s beautiful website showcases this hot drink to perfection.
However the recipe was found somewhere else.
I am trying my hand at this warming recipe tonight (found in Living Space mag, May 2017 issue) and sharing generously with the hubby & our loved-up munchkin Luca!
Mayan Hot Chocolate
Makes 1 cup
3 tbsp quality cocoa powder
1 tsp cinnamon
1 pinch cayenne pepper
1 tsp vanilla extract (i replaced the essense, with more intense extract)
1 cup full-cream milk (perhaps add a dash of cream for extra indulgence)
Honey (to taste)
MIX the cacao, cinnamon, cayenne pepper and vanilla extract together in a mug.
Pour the milk into a glass container & microwave at full power until it begins to boil (approx. 2 minutes)
Slowly pour the hot milk over the mixture in the mug, stirring with a small whisk as you pour.
Add honey to taste – sit back and enjoy surrounded by loved ones OR perhaps the latest episode of Game of Thrones once the little one is snug in bed 😉
