My favorite Winter Treat ! Italian Hot Chocolate

Hot chocolate Recipe

Italy is famous for their Cioccolato Caldo, especially during the fall and winter months. This hot chocolate is sometimes served so thick (like a pudding), that you need a spoon to actually eat it! this recipe doesn’t make it that thick. The luxurious richness comes from using top-quality chocolate.

What You Will Need:

  1. 4 ounces bittersweet chocolate 70% or higher
  2. 1 1/2 cups whole milk
  3. 2 tablespoons sugar
  4. 2 teaspoons corn starch

What To Do:

  1. Into a saucepan over LOW heat add chocolate and a drop of milk. Stir with a wooden spoon until melted.
  2. SLOWLY add remaining milk until it’s well combined. Add sugar. Mix to combine. Whisk in corn starch.
  3. Continue cooking over LOW heat until it becomes thick, creamy and coats the back of the wooden spoon.

Hot chocolate Italian-style is one of the most amazing treats in the world! You have to try this pudding-like chocolate decadence! Add some Irish cream, cinnamon, and whipped cream for a fun variation, or create your own!”

I suggest some petit four or sweet canapes and  sandwich to serve your afternoon tea

a delice !!!

Keep your guests happy with the mouthwatering canapes

Food is an important part of a party, as this is how you encourage your guests to relax and unwind. Finger food, and canapés, in particular, are a great form of food to serve as they taste fantastic and look just as great too. This is sure to impress your guests and keep them content throughout the event.

When arranging a large party or social event, there is a lot to organise. This can make it a particularly stressful and daunting prospect, especially if you have little to no experience in hosting such large events. The location, guest list, decorations, music, guest list, theme, dress code, drinks and food are just a few of the aspects that need arranging. One key element which is sometimes overlooked is food. If you do not supply your guests with a range of delicious food, then they will struggle to relax and feel content, which could result in most people leaving early. However, if you have a large spread of food it will help people to get into the mood, feel content and it can even work as a fantastic conversation starter and get people to mingle.

As there are so many different bases, garnishes and toppings, it should see suffice everybody’s wants. Creating this many canapés for a large group is a daunting prospect, which is why it is best to use the services of professional catering companies. This way, you can get a huge range of delicious and beautifully presented canapés delivered to the location with plenty of time to spare.
