Year of the Soup: Week 52

I saved dessert for last.  It’s the least nutritious soup I’ve made all year – what do you expect when the name contains the word ‘chocolate’ and the ingredient list includes marshmallow creme?  Perhaps not the hearty and healthy vegetarian fare that preceded this post.  Mmm, but it does make a heavenly dessert, and a delicious ending.  A cross between hot chocolate and pudding, this rich soup is best served as small portions with just a touch of topping.  Or in a huge tureen with a giant dollop of topping and two spoons to share.  You decide :)

Happy New Year!!
