  • Imitation Hot Chocolate-Bev Laumann

    This uses fructose-sweetened carob chips, which are available at many health food stores and specialty markets. You can also ask your grocer to carry them for you. "Chatfield's Carob and Compliments" is one good brand (Dist. by American Natural Snacks, St. Augustine FL 32085-1067 USA).

    2 Tbsp. sweetened carob chips
    1 tsp. vanilla extract
    3 Tbsp. milk
    milk, to fill cup

    Place carob chips and 3 Tbsp. of milk in a cup and heat in the microwave until chips melt and milk boils. You may have to stir a bit, and squash the chips. When about 2/3 of the chips are melted, add vanilla and more milk to make one cupful. Heat to desired drinking temperature. Some softened chips will remain on the bottom, and when you drink most of the cup, you can just add a little more milk and vanilla and reheat for a quick refill. Serves 1. (If you can't find sweetened chips, use the unsweetened ones and add a teaspoon to a tablespoon of sugar).
