West African Hot Chocolate

Mmmm… frothy and tasty. With its smooth, strong full-bodied taste this drink is popular in Ghana and also with West African ex-pats in London. Its origins are North African. The rum is a local addition! It makes a great nightcap - a nice way of winding down after a hard day's work or a special meal. Recipe courtesy of www.africanoz.com.au
