In Light of this past week's drunken slush activities, I decided to share a not-so-guilty pleasure with you. Iced Chocolate Rum(or Cognac, whichever your preference)
This little gem needs no introduction, so without further delay....
You Will Need:
3 ounces dark or semisweet chocolate
1 cup whole milk
2 Tablespoons sugar
3 Tablespoons Half and Half (or 1 1/2 Tablespoons cream)
1/2 cup cold coffee
Pinch of salt (optional)
2-3 tbsps (I tend to use waay more than this. Adjust to your liking!) Cognac or Rum
Over a double boiler, or very carefully over low heat, melt the chocolate, sugar, and milk together, stirring constantly. Add the cream, stir.
Stir in the coffee, then taste, and add the pinch of salt only if needed.
Remove from heat, and use a wire whisk to really incorporate the ingredients.
Pour over ice or chill and serve cold.
Add the Cognac or Rum to the top of the glass, and stir.
It's beguiling, so sip with the utmost caution, and to savor it. :)
