I thought about doing a project but everything seemed to require stuff I just don't have readily available. Naturally the next step was to start flipping through the pinned recipes. I found this one and thought why not? I like an occasional Almond Joy as much as the next guy. A quick look through the kitchen confirmed I had everything needed on hand so I began the very quick process of making....
Almond Joy Hot Chocolate
1 Cup almond milk
1/4 Cup coconut milk
1/3 cup chocolate chips ( milk or semi sweet both work)
a drop or two of pure almond extract ( if desired)
agave syrup as needed for additional sweetness
Combine all the ingredients in a small saucepan over medium heat. WIth a wire whisk stir until the chocolate is melted and the drink is hot, but do not boil. Remove from heat and test for sweetness, adding a little agave if needed. Makes 1 large or 2 small servings. Serve hot!
If anyone tries this and likes it please let me know what I did wrong. I really did want to love it. Fortunately I can use the almond milk in cereal and the leftover coconut milk will become Thai coconut soup for tomorrow's lunch.
