Mmm, this cocoa soup really is super yummy! A sweet, chocolatey treat, perfect for a chilly day or just to cheer you up after work. I enjoyed it with some home-made spice cookies, which was a perfect match. For flavour this would be a definite 5 stars, but unfortunately it never thickened, even though I used 2 tbs potato starch and allowed the soup to simmer for quite a while. Nonetheless it was very much enjoyed! :) Made and reviewed for Veggie Swap #16 Novembre 09.
This was fun to make & a treat for this chocoholic. I admit I have the advantage of *on-site input* & it turns out nearly all recipes for it match yours, altho some suggest using vanilla instead of cinnamon. The thickness (or lack of it) was the main issue in prior reviews & I found 1T cornstarch is used for thin soup, 2T for thick soup & 3T for pudding. I used 2T, cooked it till it was clearly starting to thicken, removed it from direct heat & let it sit for a few min. This method got me the equivalent of a thick & creamy hot chocolate that I liked a lot. Thx for sharing this recipe w/us.
I am so sorry, i dont want to be mean but my friend and I wanted to make this recipe for a Geography ISU and it did not work well. I'm sure that somewhere we are screwing up but it was sooooo bitter and just overall unpleasant. :/
We enjoyed this quite a lot. I used potato flour hoping that it might make it thicker, but it did not. That said, we still thought it was very tasty. We would have liked it a bit sweeter I think, but that is personal preference. I used skim milk which made this very low fat. This would be particularly good in cold weather. And some homemade pound cake croutons would make it almost decadent!
The kids loved this and I liked it too. It didn't thicken up much at all with the cornstarch so adding a bit more is probably not a bad idea. The sugar proportions were spot on for taste.
I followed the directions and it turned out rather bland. So I added more cocoa, sugar and cinnamon and it tasted great.
It was fantasic! I've had it for quite some time and I have grown to love it. Perfect while sitting outside in the snow.
This was unique. I agree that a little salt is the key. It's like a thicker, less sweet hot cocoa. I like the hint of cinnamon in there. I'll make this again. Thanx for a unique recipe.
this was really good. kind of like thicker hot chocolate. i loved the cinnamon addition!! thanks for a yummy and quick snack!!
Ok, I'll admit I was dubious about this recipe. But the end result was really quite nice! Out of the pan it was an awful lot like hot chocolate in a bowl, but the salt is the key. I used a couple of pinches,and suddenly it lost the (what I find) sickly sweetness and took on a much more soupy flavour. It really would be lovely on a cold winter's night! I substituted soy milk for the milk, and as I'm not allowed starch I cut a half cup of the water, just to help thicken it up.
