- 2 c. milk. Our family prefers Sassy Cow Creamery Skim.
- 3/4 c. cocoa powder. Trust me on this.
- 1 Tbsp. sugar
- 1/2 tsp. Penzey's Chili Powder 3000.
Heat milk, whisk in the cocoa. It will look more like thin pudding than hot cocoa. This is good. Add sugar and chili powder. Serve in a Rutabaga Mug.
Serves 4. Or one copywriter with a project due and an empty head.
My delicate constitution is hypersensitive to caffeine because I don't indulge often and I don't drink coffee, black tea, or Red Bull. After a full batch of this I was shaking like an old laundromat washing machine with one short foot and a full load of sheets that are unbalanced and heading into the spin cycle. Had lunch with my buddy David and he later found out I had slammed a four shots of chocolate tar and he exclaimed, "That explains a lot." I guess I was wiggly.
Enjoy in moderation,
P.S. Astute observers will notice the hideous wallpaper in the first photo. Circa 1962. We're the second owners of a 60 year-old house, and the kitchen is the last to be done. I'm estimating $20-30K.
Non-astute observers will now notice the hideous wallpaper because I pointed it out. Awesome.
