Practically Pudding Drinking Chocolate

I’ve been hoarding this recipe away for several weeks. I was waiting for a rainy day, a literal rainy day. The rainy season has come. In Vancouver, that season lasts 9 bazillion months. Boooooooo!


My misfortune is your gain because when the weather is crappy, I head straight to the kitchen for comfort. Today’s cup of comfort comes in the form of drinking chocolate.

This is not hot chocolate from a little sachet of sadness. Nope! This drinking chocolate is thick and spoonable. It’s practically pudding.

I’m not joking when I compare it to pudding. You can let it cool and eat it with a spoon if you want. In fact, I encourage that. It’s a great alternative to puddings that are loaded with thickeners.

This is enough for two people, especially if served with cookies for dipping.
