Dear dear Carolg
Merry Merry Christmas~

You are wonderful, your paintings
are wonderful and your devotion to
your (huge and growing) following
is wonderful. (My daughter says I
overuse that word and would prefer
I use "adventurous"). sigh.

I love and adore your "rescued painting"
this morning. I'd love to know the history
of that picture....and how you got from
there to here. It shows your history I
think...and hints at the exciting paths
ahead for you. My daughter is taking
me to Paris with her in April (we hope).
Won't that be wonderful AND adventurous.

Thank you for your scrumptious
breakfasts...perfect start to m'day.
hugs~ Barbara in the Mojave

I have a question for you...which brand of hot chocolate mix do you recommend that would be the most equivalent to Angelina's hot chocolate?
I just went to William Sonoma and to my distress, I found out their "Rich and Creamy Hot Chocolate" is no longer available. So, of course I had to ask the chocolat chaud expert which she prefers...HELP!!!
Are there any on Amazon????

Happy New Year!

Parisbreakfasts said...

And the answer IS!!!
There is nothing like Angelina hot chocolate including the stuff they sell there.
You could always take the best, most $$$$ chocolate bar and grate it up. That's pretty much what they do. Sorry but it's true.
What I do is:
1-2 Tblsp Valrhona cocoa($$$)
1-2 Tablsp of Marie-Belle Dark
1-2 Tablsp of Les Confitures a l'Ancienne powdered chocolate
+ a sprinkle of cinnamon
Make a thick slurry with cold water added gradually
Then heat up in the nuker for 1+ minutes, making sure it does not boil over.
Voila!
Enjoy
Carol
