Hot Chocolate

A 2-post collection

Setting up PLNs

Mayhem says he's ready to take his written test. The problem with this is single - TIMING.

  • Dept of Transport is only open during business days.
  • And is only open until about 4PM
  • Chaos' bus arrives sometime between 3 and 4
  • It takes 15-20 minutes to get to the closest Dept of Transport (not including finding a park)

So my options are:

  1. Get someone to wait for Chaos on a pre-set afternoon and drive Mayhem straight to the place
  2. Wait for Chaos and hope for the best as I take off like a rocket
  3. Make it an entire day with the school
  4. Make it a half/partial day with the school
  5. Pick him up for this noise at a given lunchtime and do it then

Yeah. This is a little bit of a pickle. Shall discuss option 1 with Beloved before pondering the possibilities of the other four.

Enough of that. On to the bit you were waiting for:

Hot Keto Chocolate V1.1


Direct substitution of cocoa butter for dairy butter. Check the last recipe for all the details


A nicer warm chocolate milk mix

  • Cocoa butter removes chocolate flavour from the mixture
  • Pretty much have to spend 30 seconds to a minute to re-warm the mix on every step
  • And add the almond milk whilst stirring.
  • Otherwise no buttery undertaste. May taste 'oily' if improperly mixed.

Version 2 is going to include more high-cocoa chocolate.

Hot Keto Chocolate V1.0

I did some experimentation last night, based loosely around this video recipe for frozen chocolatey treats we Keto-cooks call "fat bombs".

The result has a definite buttery undertaste and I'm wondering if it would work better with cocoa butter instead of the regular dairy butter.

BUT... if you're on Keto and craving a little of that lovely winter warmer, here's the Alpha version:
