Cardamom Spiced Hot Chocolate Shots
This is a classic hot chocolate that I have been making for years at home. The cardamom is my little Indian touch to take it to another level and believe me, it makes all the difference. Sometimes, I add a little grating of fresh ginger for an added taste of India and surprisingly, it works really well.
What you need -
2 cups whole milk
2 tbsp cocoa powder
¼ cup sugar
½ cup chopped dark chocolate
2 cardamom pods, pounded
1 cup whipped cream
Putting it all together-
1. Heat the milk in a saucepan and bring to a simmer. Whisk in the sugar, cocoa and stir till combined. Add in the chopped chocolate and cardamom, stirring occasionally, until the chocolate has melted.
2. Strain (if you want to eliminate the cardamom bits) into small cups, top with a dollop of whipped cream and some chocolate shavings or chips.
