Chocolate - San Churro
I've been patiently waiting since Christmas to try the hot chocolate from Chocolateria San Churro and finally it's cold enough to do so.
Chocolateria San Churro opened up last year in Fitzroy and it's a most sinful place to visit - the freshly made churros with your choice of molten dark, milk or white is a MUST HAVE. The most decadent item on their menu is the Tres Chocolates (it's a triple shot of chocolate - 3 espresso glasses filled with white, milk and dark chocolate!) - even Paalo was unable to finish that dish. If you do order it you need to drink it quickly - as it cools it turns back into solid chocolate!
Besides being able to gorge on all things chocolate they also have a range of products that you can take home - one of which is the focus of this post.
This is AZTECA - it's drinking chocolate flavoured with chilli and cinnamon.
It's simple to make, heat up the appropriate amount of milk, whisk in the required amount of chocolate and then keep stirring until the whole thing thickens.
The chilli is definitely a flavour that comes through - subtle at first it then builds to give you that typical "warm" feeling to your lips and tongue. It's not overpowering though, so you won't be breaking out in tears with this one and for an extra chilly day, it's a perfect choice.
