Colder evenings and mornings do call for one of my favorite drinks - Hot Chocolate, and I'm giddy with excitement over a new way to prepare it that I gleamed from a recent trip to Buenos Aires, Argentina. Before travelling, I was perusing websites of the city and came across a lot of people discussing their undying love for Argentinain Hot Chocolate, so I made it a point to take some snaps of their preparation - cutely named El Submarino - or "The Submarine" at one of the numerous cafes dotting the city, where I was lucky to find ONE waitress who knew a little English and could explain what I was attempting to eat or drink. Students, grab your notes!
1. Get a glass of hot, scalding milk.
2. Grab a bar of chocolate, dark seems to be the variety they use. I'm partial to milk chocolate, though. Ignore ooeey, gooey chocolate dessert the significant other is scarfing down. Is scarfing a real verb?
3. Carefully place chocolate bar in milk. Pose, for posterity sake.
4. Actually, students, that was a mistake. You are supposed to DUNK. Think Kobe Bryant. But in Argentinian.
5. Swirl with spoon and watch the ensuing chocolatey, frothy goodness that evolves. Is chocolatey a real adjective?
