Hello!! Do you mean Chocolate?? Well I'm giving you this, If it's not what you're asking for, let me (us) know.

Try this and
You will need :


8 cups nonfat dry milk powder
1 package (15 ounces) instant chocolate drink mix
1-1/2 cups powdered nondairy creamer
1-1/4 cups confectioners' sugar
3 tablespoons instant coffee granules
1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 envelope unsweetened orange or raspberry soft drink mix

Chocolate Cups
1/2 cup semisweet chocolate chips
1 teaspoon shortening
Whipped cream in a can


What to Do
1. In a large bowl, combine the first seven ingredients; mix well. Store in an airtight container for up to 6 months.

2. For chocolate cups, in a microwave, melt chips and shortening; stir until smooth. With a small pastry brush or 1/2 teaspoon measure, spread chocolate mixture on the inside of 1-in. foil or paper candy cups. Place on a baking sheet. Refrigerate for 45 minutes or until firm. Just before serving, remove foil or paper cups and add whipped cream.

3. To prepare hot chocolate: For each serving, combine 1/3 cup mix and 1 cup boiling water; stir to dissolve. Place one filled chocolate cup in each mug; stir until melted.

Yield: 11 cups hot chocolate mix and 16 chocolate cups
:wink:

I think this is what you're asking for, but I gave you more clues, even I'm not good at cooking or preparing drinks..! 8)

I love hot chocolate!
Thanks for the suggestions, Oriani. I'll try it and let you know...
What's your favourite hot chocolate? Do you like a liquid chocolate or a thicker chocolate? With sweet or bitter cocoa? With or without whipped cream?

Well, in most Italian coffee bars you can find different kinds of hot chocolate (with cinnamon, coffee, bitter cocoa, caramel, nuts, etc.) but they are prepared using a powder mixture ready for use.
Personally, I prefer the real hot chocolate, made with pieces of chocolate, melted in hot milk and with a lot of whipped cream on it...

Yes, coffee with milk is very good too: every morning for breakfast I have a 'cappuccino' :wink:

I think that Cappuccino is one of the most famous drinks here in Venezuela, and most of the Italian restorants there are here, have that Cappuccino as a special drink.... With vanilla is awezome also!!

Hi, yelee
In our country we also have the hot chocolate, we call it chocolate chafing dish, served with fresh fruits and cakes.
It's new and very popular in Shanghai this winter :)

If you visit Barcelona one day, remember to try hot chocolate there!
There is a road where you can drink the best hot chocolate in the whole town: it's very thick, with a lot of whipped cream on the top and you can dip 'churros' (a kind of fried sweets) into it... :D

In certain countries they reckon that chocolate is a turn on. The theory is that you melt it down with yoghurt and honey and pour it over your partner and lick it off.

Sounds like a damn good recipe to me!!! :lol: :lol: 8)

My recomendation!!

Postby monic » Sat Jul 14, 2007 3:29 pm

Make some waffles (better if you make them!!)

Bou some Hershey`s Chocolate Syrup, buy also a "Dulce de Leche" from Haagen Dasz...

Here is the recomendation, try to take the waffle when it is still warm... Put some of this ice cream on the waffle and then the Hershey syrup...

I lov :D e this combination, hope you can do it!
