I routinely fail to follow food preparation directions and recipes. However, I highly recommend making SOMA's A La Taza drinking chocolate the proper way: on the stovetop (or even microwave) with lots of patient stirring. By resisting the temptation to take a short-cut, I was rewarded with a very smooth, thick, almost fluffy, hot drinking chocolate (seasoned with cinnamon and vanilla). I felt like I was sipping warm, dark chocolate mousse with my cinnamon toast (Rudi's gluten free Cinnamon Raisin bread).
Today was Day #7 of Chocolate and Cinnamon Theme Week.
