I am excited to share this jewel of a recipe with you. It is a special drink, so make it when you are feeling.. special!:) This would not be an every night kind of drink- too expensive and not good for the body- but for a treat, I say go for it!
It combines 2 brands of chocolate..Godiva and Dove. I know, very indulgent.
I got the recipe from a very special lady, Ilo Tefft. She told me about the recipe almost a year ago and I have not forgotten about it, but I was too cheap to buy a bottle of Godiva Chocolate Liqueur. I had told a close friend about the recipe a while back, and guess what? For my birthday she bought me a bottle of Godiva Milk Chocolate Liqueur! How great is that? It is a beautiful bottle full of creamy milk chocolate. Just a teaspoon in a cup of coffee creates a delightfully warm, evening drink, but.. back to the hot chocolate. Ilo was kind enough send me the recipe again, and last night I was in creamy, dreamy, chocolate heaven.
Here is what you do:
*Pour about 8 oz milk into a mug (I used whole milk-yea, baby!)
*Drop 3 Dove chocolates into the mug of milk.
*Heat in microwave until hot (less then 2 minutes)
*Add Godiva Chocolate liqueur to taste, 1-2 teaspoons.
*Add 1 1/2 tsp sugar (optional)
*Use fancy frother to whip it up. (or just a spoon:))
*Sit back, relax, and sip!
To cut down on cost, you can also use cocoa powder. Heat the milk in your mug, add 1 Tbls Cocoa powder and a little less than 1 Tbls sugar. Whip it up, add the Godiva liqueur, whip again, enjoy!
