This spiced cinnamon hot chocolate is liberally laced with brandy and topped with whipped cream, it is the type of hot chocolate I remember drinking après-ski in Germany and in the French Alps. It is the perfect drink to warm your tingling fingers and toes on a cold and frosty evening or morning. Great throughout the Holiday season, as well as Christmas, New Year and the winter months, OR for those "Why Not" days! This makes 4 generous tall mugs of hot chocolate. Please adjust the brandy to suit your taste - we find the amount listed here gives a lovely warm tingle, however you can leave the brandy out for drivers and those that don't drink alcohol - you will still have a delicious spiced and decadent drink! Do try to use a high quality and high cocoa solids chocolate - it makes all the difference to the taste! Salut !
I made this with my children after trying to find something they could help with in the kitchen. They had this for breakfast and made more and more batches until I ran out of watermelon! Can also be frozen for an ice block or sorbet-type dessert
A recipe I found on www.food-india.com website. There are several other chai recipes posted to this site, but none have quite the lineup of spices that are included in this recipe, which I really liked a lot.
A wonderfully sweet chocolate chai. Makes your tea a little more exciting. Note: I especially like alwalde's suggestion to cut back on the milk. Please take that change into consideration when preparing.
Tablets of Mexican chocolate, specially flavored cinnamon, almonds, and sugar can be purchased in Mexican or Latin American grocery stores. You can also blend your own "Mexican chocolate" with the same ingredients.
Received this recipe through a local grocery store coupon flyer. I could not stop myself from trying this! I know there is a friend on here (CoffeeB! :) ) who would love this just as much as I did. Like a melted peanut butter cup in a mug! Yummy!
Posting this for Greek region of ZWT 6. Found it online at FoodTV site from Giada De Laurentiis, while searching it for Greek recipes. Sounds delicious!! Time doesn't include time for sugar/water cooling.
Found this in one of those little grocery store magazines and it looks so yummy I want to save it here to try when those warm, lazy summer days arrive. The magazine states "A batido is a popular Latin American drink made with water, milk, fruit and ice. It is similar in testure to a smoothie and literally means "beaten" in Portuguese" Sound good to me. Update: After seeing Loof's wonderful picture I finally got around to making this myself and so glad I did. Love that tropical flavor.
