Tips for Hot Chocolate

October 15th, 2013 · No Comments · non-computer

Today I have something that’s not at all computer related. It’s starting to get colder outside, and so I’m going to share my tips for good hot chocolate.

1. Heat the water before adding the cocoa mix. If you heat them together, you’re also applying the strong heat to the powder, and that’s a good way to end up with burned chocolate.
2. Don’t try to drink it too hot. Patience is a virtue.
3. Buy the packets, rather than the large containers. If you look at the servings on each package and compare it with the price, the cost per serving is the same. The packets are much more convenient, and make it easier to get the amount right. With the large containers, the tendency is to not use enough.
4. A little bit of extra creamer or whipped cream goes a long way.
5. Chopsticks and popsicle sticks make good stir sticks.
6. A packet of hot chocolate mix is a great way to flavor your morning coffee. Cream and sugar in one.
