Chocolate soup

Valentine’s day is a celebration of romance in many countries around the world. In Iran from ancient times there is an Iranian festival that is known as the Iranian Day of Love (Sepandarmazgaan) that on 24th Feb and it was a special feast of the women and girls. Men used to make them presents, all women and girls were treated as queens and whatever they demanded would be done by their men.

For Valentine’s day and Iranian Day of Love I have prepared some cookies and sweets. If you like my recipes, do not forget to follow me in my webpage, thank you.

Chocolate soup

Few years ago I had one of my best hot chocolate in Cafe Wedle, in Warsaw. It was just a piece of heaven. Very rich, with different flavours and served along with a glass of warm water. Because hot chocolate was soooo rich and my lips were sealed. So I though the following recipe ‘ Chocolate soup’ would be a lovely dessert for Day of Love .

Show me a person who does not like chocolate, or maybe there is someone who hate chocolate? If you hate chocolate, I have a good news. With this recipe you will be a serious chocolate lover. It’s basically pure liquid hot chocolate served in a bowl, jar or a wee pot.

. In some recipes with adding thickening agent such as cornstarch and egg yolk, make a thick hot chocolate. But I personally prefer to use more chocolate as a thickener and make a rich hot chocolate. Just do not forget to use good and healthy dark chocolate Brands.
