To make the "chokola Ayisyen", boil the cocoa chunks whether it’s a ball or sticks in water. Use amount of water equal to the amount of hot chocolate that you want to serve.
Some people use a graj (grater) to pulverize the cocoa balls or sticks before they add water and boil them. It melts better and faster that way.
Once it has melted, you may add milk (carnation milk or powdered milk are often used where there’s no fridge)
If you’re using coarse cocoa then you’ll have to strain it before adding a little sugar and cinnamon sticks or star anise spice to your hot chocolate. We usually serve it with Haitian bread.
