Chocolate Soup


Chocolate soup is prepared by putting into a saucepan about a quarter of a pound of grated chocolate with 3 pints of milk. These quantities can, of course, be proportionately altered to suit the occasion. The milk must be boiling. Put in a lump of sugar and let the whole boil for an hour. Before serving stir the yolks of four eggs, previously beaten up in a little milk. Pour this over fried dice of rolls and serve very hot. — Kansas City Times.
