Vitamix Hot Chocolate Nutmegnanny

Vitamix Hot Chocolate Nutmegnanny

Vitamix Hot Chocolate (het bietjie koffie by)

www.nutmegnanny.com

Yield: 2 mugs hot chocolate

Ingredients:

1 1/2 cups whole milk
1/2 cup semisweet chocolate chips
1 teaspoon espresso powder
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
Dash ground cinnamon
Whipped cream

Source: Adapted from Vitamix

Directions:

Add all ingredients except the whipped cream into your Vitamix blender. If you have a Vitamix Blender that has a hot soup preset option set it and forget it! (Well, don’t forget it…drink it after it’s done) After your hot chocolate is finished pour it into a mug, top with whipped cream and sprinkle with cinnamon.

If your Vitamix does not have a preset option simple blend on high until hot. This will take about 4 minutes.

* If you don’t have a Vitamix you could simply heat the milk, add the ingredients to your blender and blend. Or you could simply do it on the stove top as well.

Hot Chocolate with chili and cinnamon - Kwestiasmaku

Hot Chocolate with chili and cinnamon – Kwestiasmaku

Hot Chocolate with chili and cinnamon

Hot chocolate like a child, but without the chili and cinnamon.  For afternoon tea or a birthday party.

You can add chocolate and cinnamon chilli powder or chilli piece and a piece of cinnamon bark.  You can also add chili flakes.

If you want to get a very thick chocolate – to eat a teaspoon of the cup, we have to reduce by half the amount of milk and / or add more chocolate.

The components, 2 – 4 servings:

250 ml milk

5 tablespoons creamy cream 30%
2 tablespoons granulated sugar
1/3 tsp chili powder (cayenne pepper) or a piece of chilli pepper – the amount to taste
3 teaspoon of cinnamon powder or a piece of cinnamon bark
50 g of dark chocolate

Extras (optional):

•whipped cream (cream, whipped 30% cream with powdered sugar)
•chili flakes or cocoa powder or cinnamon

Preparation:

Pour the milk into a saucepan and cream, add powdered sugar and fresh chili and cinnamon bark if they use (powder spices add later).  Heat on medium heat, stirring every now and then (not).  Chop the chocolate into small pieces and add to the hot milk. Heat over medium heat, stirring constantly until chocolate is melted.  Add the cinnamon and chili powder or chili flakes.  Bring to a boil.  Finally, you can mix the mass.  Weight should come out brown and smooth.  Serve in small cups.  Garnish with whipped cream and sugar fondant pudrem.

Caramel Hot Chocolate

http://www.cookingclassy.com/2013/01/caramel-hot-chocolate/

2 Servings (recipe can easily be doubled)

Ingredients

2 cups milk, preferably whole

1/4 – 1/2 cup bittersweet chocolate chips (I recommend Ghirardelli)*

1/2 cup caramel sauce, recipe follows

sweetened whipped cream or vanilla marshmallows

grated chocolate and coarse or Maldon sea salt for garnish, optional

Caramel Sauce

1 cup granulated sugar

1/4 cup water

1/4 cup salted butter

2/3 cup heavy cream

Directions

Prepare caramel sauce according to directions listed and allow to cool slightly. Heat milk in a medium saucepan over medium heat. Once milk is warm, stir in chocolate chips and caramel, and cook whisking constantly until chocolate has melted. Allow to cool slightly and serve warm topped, topped with sweetened whipped cream or miniature marshmallows, drizzle each serving with 1 Tbsp caramel sauce and garnish with grated chocolate if desired.

For the caramel sauce:

Gather all of your ingredients and have them nearby ready to add to the mixture as needed. In a heavy-bottomed 3 quart saucepan, heat sugar and water over moderately high heat whisking constantly to dissolve sugar. Once mixture reaches a boil, stop whisking and allow mixture to boil until it reaches a dark amber color, carefully swirling pan occasionally. Once mixture reaches a dark amber color, immediately add butter and whisk until butter has melted then immediately remove from heat. Wait 3 seconds then carefully pour in cream and immediately whisk to combine (it will bubble vigorously). Whisk until mixture is smooth. Allow caramel to cool several minutes then pour into a glass jar to cool.

*For a richer hot chocolate, you can use up to 1/2 cup bittersweet chocolate chips and mix in more caramel sauce as well if desired.
