Hot chocolate is a great way to combat Old Man Winter when he blasts his chilly wind your way! Even if the winter is relatively mild, like ours has been so far, this molten glory is suitable in all kinds of weather. And Chef Bill Beck can’t resist spicing things up. Try his Deviled Cocoa for a sure-fire way to heat up your days and nights…..
2 TBSP unsweetened cocoa powder
2 TBSP sugar
3 TBSP water
1 1/2 cups milk
2 TBSP chopped dark chocolate (or chocolate chips)
a pinch of Beck’s Devil Dust
In small saucepan, mix cocoa, sugar and water to make a paste. Heat over medium til mixture bubbles. Add milk and chocolate, continue heating and mix til chocolate melts and cocoa is hot. Pour into cups and sprinkle with a tiny pinch of Devil Dust. Enjoy.
