Hot chocolate cups

With winter still in Cape Town, and snow on the mountains, here is a bit of comfort drinking until somer does arrive. This is not for the skinny hot chocolate lovers, but if you have a serious chocolate craving this will sort that out! 

chocolate cups

What you need: {Makes 4 cups}
180g good quality dark chocolate
1/2 cup of cream
pinch of salt
teaspoon of vanilla essence
4 small cup cake cups
4 wood spoons

Break the chocolates into small pieces and put in a double boiler.  {Use a glass mixing bowl that fits onto a pot, then boil water in the pot over a medium heat, the heat of the water then melts the chocolate, do not let the water touch the top glass bowl}

When melted, add the cream, salt and vanilla essence, and keep on stirring the mixture {keep stirring, you’ll see that it becomes a smooth mixture}

Once everything is melted and well mixed, remove from the heat.

Pour the mixture into the cupcake cups, and allow to cool slightly, then put the spoon into the chocolate mixture.
