Rainy November Days & Chocolate Soup
We’re having some rainy November days in the hollow. Between the wind and the rain, the last of the leaves have fallen. These are good days to put a pot of soup on the stove to simmer and then curl up with a good book. What are you cooking and reading today?
I ran across this vintage recipe and thought you would enjoy it. I believe that milk would be a good substitute for water in this recipe.
Put three tablespoonfuls of cocoa into a double boiler, and add gradually one pint of boiling water. Stir for at least five minutes over the fire. Add four tablespoonfuls of sugar, take from the fire and add a teaspoonful of vanilla. Turn this into one pint of cracked ice, and when the soup is cold, turn into the serving cups, and put on the surface a tablespoonful of whipped cream, and serve
