I have just found out this week that Molly Mell, with the White Chocolate Truffles - Brigadeiro recipe, won the 4th prize in the Chocolate Lovers Recipe Contest at Torta Della Figlia.
I started this unpretentious blog about a year ago, a place to keep my creativity flowing, and it is rewarding to know that, somehow, it is reaching people.
Many thanks Marcela, the judges, the sponsor!!!
And guess what I made to celebrate it. Oh, yes, another delicious, quick and easy chocolate recipe.
Creamy Hot Chocolate, the way my mother used to make when my siblings and I were little. No fancy ingredients to make this rich and tempting hot chocolate.
Makes 1 big mug
♥ 2 tbsp natural cocoa powder
♥ 2 cups milk (I used 2% organic reduced fat)
♥ 2 tbsp cornstarch
♥ sugar to taste
Mix the cornstarch, one spoon at a time, with 1/2 cup of milk. Stir this mixture slowly until the cornstarch is completely dissolved, and keep on the side.
Place the cocoa powder and the remaining milk in a small saucepan over low heat, stir slowly until it is all blended. I suggest using a wooden spoon.
Gradually pour the dissolved cornstarch into the saucepan. Continue stirring over low heat until it becomes a thick and creamy texture. Do not let it boil.
Get cozy and enjoy it warm.
