Cold chocolate coffee

I am not a coffee person till last year. I started taking coffee while i prepare filter coffee for my domestic helper. who can resist filter coffee? I  do not know to prepare coffee during my hostel days. my friends help me out with decoction and mixing. 



I remember once i had to tell on how to make filter coffee in my class 11 for english viva. when i told, "mix coffee powder with hot milk", everyone in the class started to laugh. When my English teacher started to yell at me, i was just blinking, as i thought that i told the right one. but when the other girl started to tell, i realized, oh there are so many steps in it. which i finished in just one step. sorry to bore you with my memories. 



So with this hot climate, i wanted to have cold coffee. i looked many sites, finally this chocolate coffee attracted me. chocolate y coffee is what i arrived at. 


To prepare chocolate sauce:


Ingredients:


  • Dark chocolate - 25 gms / 1/4 cup
  • Butter - 1/2 tbsp
  • Sugar / brown sugar - 3 tsp
  • Salt - a small pinch
  • Honey / Corn syrup - 1 tsp
  • Milk - 3 tbsp

Method:

  1. To prepare chocolate syrup, it should be cooked using double boiling technique. so never cook chocolate in direct heat as it may burn the chocolate. 

  2. For double boiling, take a wide vessel filled half with water. boil the water. take another medium sized bowl that could sit inside the wide vessel. 

  3. Put the dark chocolate, sugar and milk to the medium sized bowl sitting over the boiling water on a wide vessel. reduce the flame to low and start stirring with a wooden spoon till the chocolate melts and blends well with milk.

  4. Once the chocolate had melted, add honey and butter. keep stirring and in less than 2 minutes the chocolate sauce get thicker. on cooling it may get still thicker, so take it off, while the sauce starts thickening.

  5. The chocolate sauce will be looking shiny and you can feel it getting thickening. remove it at that point.

I prepared the chocolate syrup a while back and totally forgot.  here is when i prepared last.
