Autumn Chocolate

A new tea recipe for the new season! This one involves chocolate. I made it using Celestial Seasoning’s English Toffee Dessert Tea, but as always, substitute something similar if you wish.

Ingredients:
Dessert Tea
Chocolate wafers
Hot chocolate mix (I use Cadbury)
Milk
Whipped cream (optional)
Chocolate sprinkles (optional)

Turn the kettle on. Measure how much your favourite mug holds. When the kettle whistles, steep tea bag in half that amount of water, likely to be around 3/4 cup. Meanwhile, put milk— the other half of that amount—into a small saucepan and begin to warm it on the lowest setting. Chop about seven chocolate wafers into teensy pieces, and when the milk is warm, whisk them in. Mix tea with a heaping spoonful of hot chocolate mix, and then add milk. You can also froth the chocolate-y milk before adding.

If you desire, add whipped cream and chocolate sprinkles on top.

I haven’t tried this, but if you’d like an extra spicy kick, a sprinkle of cinnamon and a tiny sprinkle of chili powder might work well.

Enjoy!
