Haha! Good one David :lol:

I only realized it was sideways after I uploaded it and couldn’t be bothered to fix it.

In Canada, the colloquial term we use is "nightmare".

Thanks, the only response I could come up with for @Daniel's post was :

:smack: :bash:

And may your dreams @Daniel be full of rattlesnakes in return :coffee:

A French version (and, as usual, I haven't tried the recipe yet):

French Hot Chocolate

French-Hot-Chocolate.-Classic-dark-European-style-hot-chocolate.jpg

The most decadent dark hot chocolate recipe that tastes just like the French hot chocolate found in Paris cafés.
Intense, rich, and absolute heaven for any chocolate lover. Recipe based off of the famous Café Angelina in Paris.

Yield: 2 large, intense cups or 4 smaller ones

Prep Time: 3 minutes
Cook Time: 5 minutes
Total Time: 8 minutes

Ingredients:

1 1/2 cups whole milk
1/2 cup heavy cream
2 teaspoons powdered sugar
1/2 teaspoon espresso powder (optional, but delicious for intensifying chocolate flavor)
8 ounces bittersweet chocolate, at least 70%, chopped

Giant bowl of whipped cream, for serving

Directions:

In a medium saucepan over medium heat, whisk together the whole milk, heavy cream, powdered sugar, and espresso powder until small bubbles appear around the edges. Do not allow the mixture to boil.

Remove from saucepan from the heat and stir in the chopped chocolate until melted, returning the sauce to low heat if needed for the chocolate to melt completely. Serve warm, topped with lots of whipped cream.
