Hot Chocolate :)

Hello lovelies!          Hallo Mädels!

Have you ever tried making hot chocolate from scratch? I did and it tastes so much better than the store-bought ready mixed stuff. Plus you can adjust the sweetness to your taste!
*
Habt Ihr schon mal "richtige" heiße Schokolade zubereitet? Ich hab's ausprobiert und sie schmeckt eindeutig besser als die fertige Trinkschokolade, die meistens viel zu süß ist! 


Here's a recipe that fills 4 regular sized mugs.
Basically, you finely grate a bar of chocolate (milk or dark, both work fine). In a small bowl mix together 5 tblsp. good quality pure cocoa with 1/2 tsp. of cinnamon and 1 - 2  sachets of vanilla sugar, depending how sweet you'd like it to be.
*
Dieses Rezept ist für 4 normalgroße Becher.
Eine Tafel Milch- oder dunkle Schokolade (je nach pers. Geschmack) sehr fein raspeln. In einer kleinen Schüssel 5 EL Backkakao (z.B. von Sarotti) mit 1/2 TL Zimt und 1 - 2 Päckchen Vanillezucker mischen, je nachdem wie süß man es mag.


In a medium sized pot bring milk to boiling point, then turn down heat immediately. Stir in cocoa and grated chocolate and whisk until completely dissolved. Pour into mugs and enjoy!
*
In einem mittelgroßen Topf die Milch zum Kochen bringen, dann sofort Temperatur runter stellen, Kakao und Schokolade einrühren und so lange mit dem Schneebesen rühren bis alles aufgelöst ist. In die Becher gießen und genießen!
