Chocolate Comfort in a mug!
July 15, 2012 in Uncategorized
My children love hot chocolate. If I’ll allow it, they would start every day with a mug full, but I somehow think all that sugar is not a good way to start a day, but with this extreme cold weather we are experiencing, I find it more and more difficult to say “No!”. This week while the rest of Cape Town spend their days under blankets or in front of a fireplace, my son played water polo and he needed some sweet comfort chocolate pudding in a mug……
I have made a self-saucing chocolate pudding before, but this time, I needed more warmth and more comfort in that pud. If I think of winter spices and flavors, the first that comes to mind are ginger, cinnamon, cloves and allspice and nutmeg. I could not possibly put all those spices in one pudding, but it was darn difficult to choose so I chose my favorite ones, which were clove, cinnamon and ginger. All you need is a little of each spice and your chocolate pudding will be different and oh so comforting!
