No doubt you've heard that the Northeast just got clobbered by snowstorm Hercules. These names get more dramatic each year! There was a lot of snow and we're still having bitter cold, so maybe the drama of Hercules is warranted.
This kind of dramatic cold deserves an equally dramatic drink. Preferably chocolate.
A few days ago, I read an article about local hot chocolate spots around Boston. There are many that I want to try. Then earlier today, I saw a recipe for Parisian Hot Chocolate.
Why not make my own home one of the best local spots around Boston for hot chocolate? It's cheaper and I won't have to venture out into the tundra that I now suddenly live in. I adapted the recipe to make it single serving and made a few additional changes as well.
This hot chocolate is very rich, chocolaty, sweet and creamy. It 's not something to have everyday. Even though it's a drink, it's a dessert too.
On a night when the wind chill is already 10 below zero and dropping, it makes a nice warm-up. Plus it's very quick. I'll definitely be making this again. Hope you'll try it too!
Single Serving Parisian Style Hot Chocolate
2/3 cup vanilla almond milk
1/3 cup Half + Half (milk + cream)
4 T unsweetened cocoa powder
3 T packed brown sugar
1/4 tsp. vanilla extract
pinch of salt
Place ingredients in a microwave safe mug. Whisk until well combined. Microwave for about 2 1/2 minutes. Top with whipped cream. Enjoy!
