I did like the Aurelius character because he was a chef and he was kind. I could relate to his character. The book is very well written and is interesting..very unpredictable, which is a plus.
While reading this book I found myself always craving hot chocolate! And then to my amazement a cooking friend posted a recipe. I can also relate to my friend because Food Is Her Love Language! It is mine too! If I bake you something..I love you. If I continue to bake for you..I really love you.
I really love hot chocolate!
3 simple ingredients.
"I made myself a cup of cocoa". The character in this book lives on cocoa and hardly anything else. I wish I had counted the number of references to a single cup of cocoa. Hence my continuous cravings.
mmm good stuff.
Marzipan Hot Chocolate for 1 (source Lois)
- 1/4 c. semi-sweet chocolate chips, rounded
- 1 oz. marzipan
- 1 c. milk
Combine chocolate and marzipan in a food processor until it resembles a very coarse meal.
Heat milk until steaming.
With the motor running, slowly pour the hot milk into the chocolate mixture; process until throughly combined.
Return to pan and heat to desire temperature.
(If making more than one cup, only add one cup of milk to the chocolate mixture. Combine the chocolate mixture with the remaining milk in the saucepan.
Call me lazy but...
I just threw everything in the blender and whirled it about. It was great.
