#239 I miss cioccolata calda

Here in the States hot chocolate is a beverage made of milk or water (!) and chocolate powder.

Someone adds marshmallows.

But in Italy a good cioccolata calda, is dark, thick, and made with milk only, perhaps with a nice topping of sweet, heavy, whipped cream (the real one).

 

Needless to say that the average Italian doesn’t even know what a marshmallow is.
