Dark Chocolate Atole





As the weather get warmer a cup of hot chocolate in the morning or before bed is one of my favorite beverages. This chocolate atole is a wonderful addition to your drinking chocolate repertoire because it "kicks it up a notch" with a little spice and a little rum. The consistency is a bit like pudding because of the cornmeal. I think you will love it on a cool Fall or winter evening. 



Dark Chocolate Atole 

Recipe from Katherine Clapner of Dude, Sweet Chocolate

1/2 cup of fine ground cornmeal
21/2 cups of whole milk
21/2 cups of water
1 teaspoon Saigon cinnamon
5 tablespoons cane sugar
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
1 tablespoon of dark rum
1 teaspoon salt
6 tablespoons Valrhona cocoa powder
6 ounces Valrhona Equatorial chocolate
Whipped Cream

Combine the corn meal, milk water, Cinnamon, sugar, vanilla and rum in a blender and blend the mixture until smooth.
Transfer the mixture to a medium saucepan and add the salt and cocoa powder. Bring to a boil over medium heat whisking constantly. Reduce heat to low and cook until the mixture thickens slightly, then cook for an additional 5 minutes. Add chocolate and whisk until melted.

Serve with whipped cream and enjoy.

5 Chocolate Friday Favorites


Good morning!  Here are my 5 chocolate favorites from this week. 




I love peanut butter cups, peanut butter eggs, ghosts, trees and whatever other shape comes up with but occasionally I eat too many and am left with a pile of them. Rather than wasting them I like to make these Reece's Peanut Butter Cup No Bake Cookies.





Oh my goodness, doesn't this Oohey Gooey Chocolate Cake look decadent? I cannot wait to make it. 




Chocolate Waffles! I have never had chocolate waffles and I cannot wait to make this recipe from I Bake He Shoots









This Chocolate Tea is a great drink when you do not feel like the calories from hot chocolate. It is light and has the essence of chocolate so you get all of the flavor but not the calories. 

That's it for this week. I hope you found something your liked!

Have a great day.
