Magic Mushroom Hot Chocolate

 

This recipe is inspired by Naznin’s Kitchen  and it uses dried medicinal mushrooms such as reishi, cordyceps, or Chaga.

– 2 tablespoons cocoa powder
– 2 tablespoons honey or sweetener of your choice
– 1/4 teaspoon salt
– 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
– 1/2 cup water
– 2 tablespoons dried medicinal mushrooms

 

Here are the steps to follow:

1. In a small saucepan, heat the milk over medium heat until it begins to steam.

2. Add the chocolate chips, cocoa powder, honey, and salt to the saucepan and whisk until the chocolate is melted and the mixture is smooth.

3. In a separate saucepan, bring the water to a boil. Add the dried mushrooms and reduce the heat to low. Simmer for 20 minutes.

4. Strain the mushrooms from the water, reserving the mushroom water.

5. Add the mushroom water to the chocolate mixture and whisk to combine.

6. Pour the hot chocolate into mugs and serve. Optionally, you can top it with whipped cream, marshmallows, or a sprinkle of cocoa powder.

Mushroom Hot Chocolate with Butter

 

This recipe is inspired by Chocolate Recipe, and it uses fresh white button mushrooms that are sautéed in butter. This adds a rich and creamy texture to your hot chocolate, as well as a nutty flavor.

 

To make this recipe, you will need:

 

– 2 cups of whole milk (or a non-dairy alternative for a vegan version)
– 3 ounces of high-quality dark chocolate, chopped
– 2 tablespoons of unsweetened cocoa powder
– 2 tablespoons of sugar (adjust to taste)
– 1 teaspoon of pure vanilla extract
– A pinch of salt
– 1 cup of white button mushrooms, sliced
– 1 tablespoon of unsalted butter (or vegan butter for a vegan version)
– 1/4 cup of hot water

 

Here are the steps to follow:

 

1. Prepare the Mushroom Infusion: In a small saucepan, melt the butter over medium heat. Add the sliced mushrooms and sauté until they turn golden brown, about 5-7 minutes. Once the mushrooms are caramelized, pour in the hot water and simmer for 2-3 minutes. This will create a flavorful mushroom broth.

2. Strain the Mushroom Broth: Strain the mushroom broth into a separate bowl or container using a fine-mesh strainer or cheesecloth. Discard the sautéed mushrooms or save them for another dish if you’d like.

3. Prepare the Hot Chocolate Base: Heat the milk over medium heat in a clean saucepan until it’s steaming but not boiling. Stir occasionally to prevent scorching.

4. Add the Chocolate: Once the milk is hot, reduce the heat to low and add the chopped dark chocolate. Stir continuously until the chocolate is completely melted and the mixture is smooth.

5. Incorporate Cocoa and Sugar: Whisk in the unsweetened cocoa powder and sugar. Adjust the sugar to your taste preference. Continue to whisk until all ingredients are thoroughly combined.

6. Infuse with Mushroom Flavor: Pour the strained mushroom broth into the hot chocolate mixture and stir gently to combine. The earthy aroma of mushrooms will enhance the flavor profile of the hot chocolate.

7. Season and Finish: Add a pinch of salt and the pure vanilla extract to the hot chocolate. Stir well to incorporate all the flavors.

8. Serve: Pour the mushroom-infused hot chocolate into mugs or cups. Top each serving with whipped cream (or a dairy-free alternative), shaved dark chocolate, a sprinkle of ground cinnamon or nutmeg, and, if you like, sautéed mushroom slices for an extra touch of elegance.

This is a decadent and satisfying drink that will warm you up on a cold day!

 

 

Mushroom Hot Chocolate with Coconut Milk

 

This recipe is inspired by ForagingGuru, and it uses coconut milk instead of regular milk. This makes it vegan, dairy-free, and gluten-free. It also adds a tropical twist to your hot chocolate, as well as a creamy and smooth consistency.

 

To make this recipe, you will need:
– 2 cups of coconut milk
– 1/4 cup of unsweetened cocoa powder
– 2 tablespoons of maple syrup or agave nectar
– 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract
– A pinch of salt
– 2 teaspoons of mushroom powder (such as lion’s mane, turkey tail, or maitake)

Here are the steps to follow:

1. In a small saucepan, heat the coconut milk over medium-low heat until it’s hot but not boiling.

2. Add the cocoa powder, maple syrup, vanilla extract, salt, and mushroom powder to the saucepan and whisk until everything is well combined and smooth.

3. Pour the hot chocolate into mugs and serve. Optionally, you can top it with coconut whipped cream, toasted coconut flakes, or chocolate shavings.
