Homemade hot chocolate

Preparation time: 5-10 minutes Servings: 1-2

On cold winter nights or rainy autumn days there is nothing better than to indulge in a delicious hot chocolate. But few people know that this drink originated much earlier than coffee or tea.

And indeed, the term “chocolate” in different eras had

different values. In times of pre-Columbian America it was a cold bitter drink with chilli and vanilla. Europeans changed the original recipe chocolates, sweeten it, removed the pepper, and began to drink it hot. So if you see a recipe of hot chocolate, where the claim that real hot chocolate is a must cook chocolate, do not believe. Cocoa butter from the bean learned to pressing only in the 19th century, then invented solid chocolate to which we are so accustomed today.
