This is usually served at The Waldorf-Astoria. We like it in our house and Mrs. Mouse never charges anything extra for the service. Serves four.
2 oz. unsweetened chocolate, grated
1 cup strong coffee
3 cups scalded milk
3 T. sugar, more or less to taste
Whipped cream for garnish
V.S.P. Add grated chocolate to coffee in top of a double boiler; place directly over low heat and stir until thoroughly blended; stir in sugar and a dash of salt and bring to a boil. Let boil 3 or 4 minutes, removing pan as mixture rises. Place over boiling water; add scalded milk, stirring constantly. Remove from hot water; beat until light and frothy, pour into cups and top with a tuft of whipped cream. Serve at once.
