WE HAVE ALL COUNTED DOWN to the first day of spring
…when the night and day are of equal length…this recipe brings the light-dark equally inspiring taste of both into one glass. It’s served cold over ice- but created hot and then allowed to cool off before drinking- because it is intense and requires the kiss of an ice cube to dilute the mellow drama found in the taste.
MILK CHOCOLATE – 2 (3 ounce bars)
DARK CHOCOLATE- 2 (3 ounce bars)
HEAVY CREAM- 1 1/2 liquid cups
Break the chocolate into small pieces.
Heat the cream to the boiling point, and add the chocolate, whisking until smooth. Transfer to a bowl and cool for several hours until it has the consistency of frosting. Makes about 2 1/2 cups of mix, which can be left out at room temperature for up to three days.
TO MAKE ONE DRINK
Place 4 ice cubes into a blender with 1/2 cup of the mixture, add 1/4 cup milk. Turn on the blender until it reaches the consistency you desire from slightly chunky to smooth and milk shake like.
For an additional exciting delight, you may choose to add coffee liqueur, dark rum or orange liqueur….or all three as you please.
