Chocolate Porridge

Hello hungry peoples,

The porridge obsession continues. This is an idea I got from “The Forage” markets in Canberra. If you haven’t been you should it, it is foodie heaven. There are amazing food vans from home-made marshmallows and Italian doughnuts to authentic Peruvian cuisine and boutique wineries. It is also where I had chocolate porridge for the first time. To be honest the example I had wasn’t that chocolately but it inserted an idea into my brainworms that would not go away. My version is super chocolately but doesn’t actually use that much chocolate. That makes it healthy right????? Maybe not, but it is delicious. If you are impatient and want to speed up the cooking process, just soak your oats overnight.
