well, i tried to make homemade hot chocolate out of melted, well, chocolate! i got choco chips and plopped a few in a cup. i poured milk in and heated it all in a microwave for 1:00. then i took it out and stirred it. i felt it wasn't sweet enough so i put more chocolate and heated it up for another 30 seconds. i took it out stirred it and added mini marshmallows. it still wasn't sweet enough for me, so i added vanilla coffee sweetener. *weird, i know* it actually turned out good. this recipe is still under construction, though.

If you're going to make hot chocolate like that don't pop it in the microwave. lol.
I forgot if yumeiro shows it, but heat up chocolate in double broiler.

A pot filled 1/2 with water and place a bowl on top of it, make sure the water doesn't touch the bowl. Put it over med heat. You don't want to boil the water, you want it so that it just heats the bowl. If the water is too high, the chocolate will melt faster but become gooey.
Chop the chocolate into small pieces so it melts easier and faster.
Depending on what type of chocolate you buy (amount of cocoa), add sugar according to your tastes. (note: i usually buy 70%-75% cocoa for hot chocolate, but if you want it sweet, put in semi-sweet chocolate, the ratio is usually 60/40, and for really sweet, milk chocolate, ration is 40/60.
You should use granulated sugar, its crystals are smaller and dissolve faster. If you have confectioners sugar, be careful how much you put as it's powder.

Heat up your milk anyway you want. I put mine in a pot and heat it up, but you can put it in the microwave.

Taste the chocolate and if it's not sweet enough add sugar while it's still on the
When the chocolate is done melting throughly slowly pour it into the milk.

And you have hot chocolate :)

Madelines

These are probably the simplest pastry to make.

Batch: 1 dozen

1 egg
Sugar - 50g
Flour - 50g
Baking powder - 1/2 tsp (optional)
Butter - 50g
Lemon zest - 1/2 a lemon


Grease pan with unsalted butter then put flour on it and shake off excess powder. Place in fridge or freezer.

Mix the egg and sugar first. In a separate bowl, sieve the flour and baking powder (if using) together.
Fold in the dry ingredients to the egg/sugar mixture.
This is important, so don't forget!

Melt the butter and add it to the mixture.

Pre-heat oven: 375 F/190 C
Cook time: 13-15min (varies)

2 options: You can cook them right away or put it in the fridge for 30+ min. It can be stored up to 12hrs in the fridge. I put mine in the fridge for about 3 hrs, this really helped with the flavor.

Fill madeline shells 3/4 of the way. You can use a spoon or pipe bag, I pipped them because I find it easier.

Sprinkle some powdered sugar (optional).

Oven temps and times vary, my oven tends to get very hot so I only put them in for 14min.

Hope you enjoy them!
