(Argentinian Hot Chocolate)
I’ll always remember the first time I drank one of these. I was in a café in Argentina with my Mormon missionary companion, and some people at another table had clear glass mugs of hot milk. They were pushing pieces of dark chocolate with spoons down into the milk until it melted—a fun process for making hot chocolate. I asked what it was called and when I was told they were called “submarinos” (submarines) I immediately wanted to order one so that I could sink my own bar of chocolate like a submarine.
1 C whole milk
1-ounce dark chocolate (traditionally about 1- by 3-inches long)
- In a small saucepan, heat the milk to scalding.
- Pour into a clear glass mug and drop in the chocolate bar so you can sink the submarine. It will bob to the surface over and over, getting smaller and smaller as you keep sinking it with your spoon.
