Who wants chocolate? I love hot chocolate, in fact I love it so much I make a cold version of hot chocolate in the summer, remind me and I will show you.
What is all this stuff, you ask. Well its my hot chocolate factory, thats what. You might want to open a new window for google, or crack out all your dictionaries because I am about to get technical on you.
The large steel item is called a sauce pan, serious - look it up. The package is Abuelita chocolate, I use this when I am feeling lazy. The brown wooden thing is called a molinillo and it is used to whip the chocolate into its velvety smooth and delightful consistency.
That 'tool' is called a microplane and I use it for all kinds of things including grating fresh nutmeg, which I cannot live without, and I have to have fresh nutmeg on my hot cocoa or it doesnt taste good.
So crack out your own factory and have a cup or two, and by the way we use soymilk, I know it takes away from some of the romance but we are much healthier as a result, and we make it ourselves.
