Looking for a fool proof way to woo 'The One'? Introducing my Full Proof Love Potion!

This spiced and boozy version of old world (aka thick & rich) hot chocolate is sure to put the object of your affection in an amorous mood - for at least 20 minutes. All the time you need convince them of your many charms.

NOTE: Effectiveness is only temporary and results are not guaranteed, but deliciousness is.

Supplies needed:

  • stencil makings: 8 1/2 x 11 piece of paper, pencil, and scissors
  • drinking chocolate (I used TCHO brand - this makes a thicker, old world hot chocolate)
  • unsweetened cocoa
  • 2% milk (Feel free to substitute skim or almond milk. It will just be less thick.)
  • honey
  • ground cinnamon
  • ground nutmeg
  • ancho or regular chili powder
  • sea salt
  • whiskey or bourbon (I used Bulleit Bourbon)
  • milk frother (not absolutely necessary for potion effectiveness)

  1. Trace half of your glass/mug on the folded edge of a piece of paper.
  2. Draw half a heart* inside the half circle, giving your self a comfy distance from the edge of the circle. (approx. 1/2 - 3/4")
  3. Cut out your heart and then cut about 1/2" around your half circle. You need to make it big enough to sit on the top of the mug without falling in.

*You can make the stencil any shape you'd like!

what are drinking chocolate peices

Drinking chocolate is the old world way of making a hot chocolate drink. It's made from real little pieces of chocolate and as a result is much thicker than the powdered hot chocolate we grew up with. I used TCHO drinking chocolate for my recipe: but other companies make it too. Here'a a link that lists a few others:
