Hot Chocolate with a touch of pepper

August 26, 2014

Missing Home 

While in Barbados I there were many times when I felt isolated and homesick.  I was actually having some really awful moments and it even got to the point where I just started looking for early plane tickets to go back home.  On stormy days to get over my sadness I would make some hot chocolate and watch a film to cheer myself up.  When you have been made to feel unwelcome in a residence you have to make sure you find your own happy personal space where you can feel safe.  Having nostalgic smells, visuals around you can really help with this.  If anything this hot chocolate saved quite a few tears.

Hot Chocolate


1/2 cup sugar, 1 cup of cocoa, 2 1/2 cups of milk, 1 tsp salt, 2 tsps cornstarch, 1 pinch of cayenne pepper, about 6 cups of boiling hot water.


1. Mix all of the ingredients in a medium milk pan and sweeten or adjust flavours to taste.
