When the temperatures are almost always in single figures outside at this time of the year, my family love a hot chocolate! A discussion that often arises during the preparation of this treat is ‘What is the difference between Hot Chocolate and Hot Cocoa?’ so I decided to do a little bit of research to provide the answers…….and I didn’t realise how much I would learn about this much loved winter drink.
Of course there are the usual ‘Healthy Versus Unhealthy’ arguments but I found out some interesting facts around Hot Chocolate and Hot Cocoa……
After that little history lesson I have decided I am a Hot Chocolate drinker rather that Hot Cocoa……and I think it is time to heat some milk, stir in my pure chocolate spoon add a little swirl of cream for pure indulgence, a sprinkle of marshmallows for a finishing touch and snuggle up with a soft throw, some candles and enjoy 🙂
I am not sure what the Mexicans of 2000 years ago would think of this modern adaption!?
