    This looks delicious… and soothing… and just right for cold nights after a long day of work (the sales girl getting hassled by aggressive Christmas shoppers… story of my life!) I love the use of lavender… anything that brings together chocolate /and/ flowers is perfection!

    I love lavender and chocolate together! This reminds me of brownies I used to make… mmmm…

    Ohh great just passed it onto my friend who can’t have diary or soy 🙂 BTW I had my very first Vegan Chocolate Mousse the ther day and it was good 😀

    Oh I’ve never had carob hot chocolate before. And hehe wouldn’t it be funny if someone had done that exact same thing with the sugar? 😛

  5. janet @ the taste space

    Looks great! I planted lavender this summer but it took so long to get it make any buds. I may just have enough to try to make this…. and I agree, carob is great. 🙂

    I can identify with so many of those perhapses (is perhapses the plural of perhaps? Does perhaps even have or need a plural? Is the word perhaps starting to sound a bit like nonsense by this point – I’m thinking of a number of somethings per haps, like percent or something, ok I’m chatting shit now *blush and cringe*)
    Anyway, I just had some yummy yummy lavender dark chocolate but I wish we had vanilla almond milk in the UK, might try vanilla soy, or unsweetened with some essence. I bet a lavender chocolate mousse would be divine too. I love me some floral notes with my chocolate, I’m enjoying some rose and violet choccie at the mo too!
    Sorry about the ramble, perhaps I’m a bit lonely tonight

    YUM. I love lavender anything. I love hot chocolate…. even when it’s stinking hot here in QLD in the evening, I ALWAYS have one after dinner – I get the “Hot Chocolate Sweats” afterwards but it is SO worth it. Trying this!

    Sounds delicious and calming in any and all of those situations. Best to you Hannah.

    Perhaps this will help me get over my jetlag 🙂 I just love the way you write, Hannah dear! Even though I’m not always commenting I’m definitely reading your posts when they appear in my inbox 🙂

    Perhaps I do need one of these. A deep one I could perhaps plunge through and feel the silky warmth. Carob dreams?

  11. Kath Lockett

    ….or perhaps you’re happy and still want to try some lavender hot choccie?

  12. Kari @ bite-sized thoughts

    Oh, yes! No perhaps about it my dear, this is a definite. I still have so much culinary lavender in my pantry and this will be the perfect way to use some of it (and I agree, carob sounds like a much better pairing in this instance).

    I hope everything is going well for you, lovely. A hot lavender cocoa does sound like a wonderful pick-me-up, though I reckon I’d enjoy one anytime. x

    … and it’s even better when you use your skirt as a(n admittedly very pretty) table cloth. Perhaps.

  15. Rach

    I think perhaps you are right. 🙂

  16. Gabby @ the veggie nook

    This is so lovely Hannah! I’ve had a little jar of lavender for ages just waiting to be used in a recipe and this seems perfect. Because I’ve been feeling some of those “perhaps” lately. I hope this helped with yours 🙂

    What a cuuuute kitty mug, awwwww:) Psychic Cat knew there’d be a cat in this post, that’s why she’s sitting next to me chewing on her toenails, awww:)

    My first year without end of year exams! Cripes. awww.

  18. Tammy

    I am so making this!

  19. Libby

    Oooh this looks delightful! I’ve never had lavender with hot chocolate but this sounds fab. Almond milk would work well with it but I also can’t wait to try it with some fresh raw milk 🙂

  20. Vien

    I can’t believe that I went through so many winters without this in my life! Your recipes are beautifully simple and soooooo comforting! 🙂

  21. Ricki

    And also, maybe that is the prettiest cocoa I’ve ever seen. Possibly, I would love it even though I’m not a fan of edible lavender. Perchance it would be truly soothing against some of those negative thoughts that sneak their way in univited. And conceivably, it will help me through a cold and otherwise dreary winter. . . yes. 🙂

  22. Catherine

    That sounds lovely. I hope you are doing OK, though – this post sounds rather sad.
