Argentinian Hot Chocolate
When in Buenos Aires, KosherEye discovered a hot chocolate drink so deep in flavor, so rich in chocolate, so fragrant with vanilla that we have made it ours; we have enjoyed it over and over and over again! In Argentina it is called El Submarino -– we simply call it the best hot chocolate ever, period!
1 cup steaming hot whole milk
1 Tablespoon vanilla sugar
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 ounces of a semi sweet chocolate bar
Heat the milk and sugar until very hot, but not boiling.
Pour into a mug.
Plunge the chocolate bar into the hot milk with a spoon. (Sink the submarine!)
Stir until the chocolate has melted and is incorporated into the hot milk.
And, if you mix it correctly – there will be melted chocolate sludge at the very bottom of the cup. We like this part the best and enjoy it to the very last drop.
