Yes I've decided to indulge in one more seasonal treat...Hot chocolate.
It's delicious in every shape and flavour but the version I created to appraise a wonderful saffron from Sardinia called San Gavino have that special flair that make you say "let's do this again".
My hubby doesn't like saffron very much, he usually can just stand it into a risotto alla milanese but I swear he drank two cups of this chocolate and asked for more.
For 2 plenty servings:
1 cup white chocolate chips
1 cup heavy cream
4 cups half-and-half
1 bag saffron powder
a big pinch of ground ginger
few saffron pistils to decorate if you have
In saucepan over low heat, combine white chocolate chips and heavy cream.
Stir continuously until white chocolate chips have completely melted.
Stir in the half-and-half and stir until thick then add the saffron powder and mix very well.
Pour into cups, sprinkle a pinch of ground ginger on top (as much as you like) and few saffron pistils to decorate.
Serve with dark chocolate cookies and enjoy you holidays!
