Chocolate Milk

Remember chocolate milk in those little waxed-paper cartons at school? Well, that treat, tasty though it might have been at the time, was nothing like this fabulous Chocolate Milk. This is basically a design-your-own chocolate drink. Add whatever syrups and flavorings you fancy. If you’re making it for children or don’t want alcohol, substitute flavored syrups like raspberry or caramel for the liqueur and extract. You can serve it cold or hot, with whipped cream or marshmallows. But however you serve it … Enjoy! SAM

8 ounces milk
1 tablespoon chocolate syrup
1 tablespoon liqueur: hazelnut, almond, orange, etc.
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon (optional)

In a tall glass, combine the milk, chocolate syrup, liqueur, and extract, stirring until smooth. Serve cold or hot.
Makes 1 glass.

    Perfect comfort food! And you are right, what is better than cookies and milk? Except maybe chocolate cookies with chocolate milk!

    Sam didn’t suffer too much this week without Harry. She’s still on a chocolate high:)

    You’re right. Sam isn’t suffering much. Chocolate really does alter perception. Several readers have complained because the lovers are going through sad times. But that’s what makes a plot and who knows what’s in store for them! Thanks for commenting.

    how does michael do it emily – give such a beautiful feel without much of a setting or frills or enhanced colours and tones? typically most food photography that I have seen revolves around setting, the cutlery used, the texture of the background or table or some kind of highlighting of colour – but michael’s is phenomenally different and wonderful!! It’s just the way one would have food at home but captured so vividly.

    Hi Lakshmi,

    I don’t know how Michael does it and I’ve been his crew on lots of photo shoots. He has an eye for form and shadow and texture and the purity of an object. He’s a brilliant television/video director, as well as a still photographer. He decided at the beginning of the ROL that he wanted to turn single objects or groupings into drama with no background other than light. I can barely take a snapshot and so have no clue what goes into his photos. But they certainly are lovely and fascinating.

    As soon as the winter months come around, I am trying this recipe!

    I often make rich hot chocolate by mixing rich melted hot chocolate with half and half, and mixing the chocolate to some warmed milk… and adding a cookie !

    Cookies in chocolate milk! What a great idea! It will, I suppose, soon be cold in Canada? We’re still in the US baking in the 90s F. A cold night with warm chocolate sounds divine.
