Sifaka World Cooks!

Feb 22, 2010
Hi there!

In Sifaka World your avatars get to eat some really great foods, so we thought it would be fun for us to start giving you recipes for some of them here so you can make them at home (with an adult of course!).

At the North Pole my character, Chef Holmes, is handing out some yummy treats, including Hot Chocolate, so this week I got together with some of my real world friends and we made a video for you about how to make hot chocolate. This recipe has a twist to it--we've added cinnamon and a little chili powder to give it a Southwestern flair, but if you're not feeling adventurous you can just leave those things out and you'll still have a really great cup of homemade hot chocolate ready to go in just a few minutes!

Here's the video!

Here's the recipe:

Southwestern Hot Chocolate

4 cups milk (make it skim if you're using whipped cream as a topping)
2 Tablespoons agave syrup
4 ounces dark chocolate, chopped
2 teaspoons cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon chili powder

1/2 cup whipped cream
grated milk chocolate

1. Combine milk and agave syrup in a saucepan and heat on the stove (get an adult to help you!)until hot, but not boiling. Remove from heat.

2. Add chopped chocolate and allow it to sit for a minute before stirring.

3. Add cinnamon and chili powder and whisk until the mixture is bubbly.

4. Ladle hot chocolate into mugs and top with a small amount of whipped cream and grated milk chocolate OR marshmallows.


Note: If you're not a fan of chili powder just leave it out of the recipe.

    It's really fun to be a chef! My favorite thing in the world to do is cook with kids.

    In my real world classes we cook lots of international foods--Thai, Indian, Chinese, Japanese, Mexican--anything anyone is interested in doing I try to make happen :)

    Are there any cooking classes for kids where you live?
