191_varm sjokolade med kardemummekrem_thumb[2]

6 dl [2,5 cups] milk
2 dl [1 cup] cream
2 tablespoons honey
240 g [8,5 oz.] chopped dark chocolate

2 dl [1 cup] cream
1 teaspoon ground cardamom

1 slice white bread without crust
1 tablespoon butter
1 tablespoon sugar

This is what you do:

[1] Bring the milk, cream and honey  to a boil and stir in the chopped chocolate. Run the mix with hand blender to make the chocolate melt quicker.

[2] Whip the cream with cardamom to a light and soft foam.

[3] Cut bread into 1/2 inch cubes. Fry in butter and sugar until golden and crispy.

[4] Server chocolate in large cups topped with cardamom cream and croutons and a little grated chocolate.

Chef’s tip: As an alternative to croutons, please feel free to use coarsely crushed gingerbread or other nice biscuits.
