West African Hot Chocolate

“With its smooth, strong full-bodied taste this drink is popular in Ghana and also with West African ex-pats in London. Its origins are North African. The rum is a local addition! It makes a great nightcap – a nice way of winding down after a hard day’s work or a special meal.”


2  cup whole milkHot chocolate

4 oz best quality organic dark chocolate, broken into small pieces

2 teaspoons clear honey

1 tablespoon brown sugar

1 teaspoon vanilla essence (try to use real extract)

1 cinnamon stick

1/8 cup dark rum, to taste (optional)



Pour the milk into a small saucepan then add the chocolate, along with the honey, sugar and cinnamon stick.

Heat and stir gently until the chocolate melts. Add the vanilla and rum.

Remove the cinnamon stick just before serving in two large mugs.

Extra sugar can be added to taste.
