"Klah: a hot, stimulating drink made from tree bark and tasting faintly of cinnamon." - Anne McCaffrey: The Dragonriders of Pern. This is the classic recipe from "The Dragonlover's Guide to Pern" but most people have their own version.
- 2 tablespoons sweet ground chocolate
- 1⁄2 cup dark cocoa (same as Dutch cocoa)
- 3⁄8 teaspoon cinnamon
- 1 teaspoon dark instant coffee, ground to a powder
- 1 pinch nutmeg
- Mix all ingredients together.
- Use 2 to 4 tsp per cup of boiling water.
- Mix well.
- The klah should be thick, much like hot cocoa.
SO GOOD! Yum. I, too, added some sugar to my klah and this time around made it with hot milk instead of water. Good both ways, but very creamy and yummy with the milk.
Klah ROCKS!!! It is so easy to make and all that I changed is that you can use twice as much ground white chocolate instead of the dark for a different taste. I love Anne McCaffrey and i had made my own Klah and I have made Bubbly Berry Pies, but this Klah is better than mine, I have not been able to find The Dragonlovers Guide to Pern ANYWHERE! So, thank you SO MUCH!!! ^_^
This is a nice drink. I did add 3 tsps. of sugar to my cup of Klah and I used 4 tsps. of the mix for my drink. It was thick and indulgent! Thank you for the recipe!!
