Yummy Monday: The Chronicles of Narnia, Part 1

(In The Lion, the Witch, & the Wardrobe, when Edmund meets Jadis,
AKA The White Witch, she plies him with hot chocolate and
Turkish Delight in order to manipulate him into doing what she wants.)
     It is now December. We are on the very verge of Winter and Christmas. I can't help but think of The Chronicles of Narnia by C. S. Lewis at this time of year.
     This month, I will feature a few recipes from Narnia, including the best Turkish Delight recipe I have found yet. But today is not that day. Today is the White Witch's Hot Chocolate and Lucy Pevensie's Roasted Apples. (You will remember too, at least in The Lion, the Witch, & the Wardrobe movie, that Professor Kirke tells Mrs. McCready to make Lucy a cup of hot chocolate when Lucy is distraught. So the hot chocolate is not only from the White Witch.) I thought cocoa and roasted apples sounded nice together. I didn't want to only give you the hot chocolate recipe. But the other recipes I'll put up on the subsequent December Mondays will also go well with the cocoa. Stay tuned. (And don't worry, I will not be posting the recipe for Puddleglum's Eel Stew.)

(Oh, Lucy. I will not be featuring "bucket loads" of sardines either.)
     There is an official Narnia Cookbook, but sadly it is out of print (and like, a million dollars to buy used). Here and there on the internet you may find a recipe or two typed out by someone who owns a copy of the Cookbook. Other recipes you may find are simply inspired by Narnia or tweaked from the cookbook. The cocoa recipe below is an example of a tweaked Narnia Cookbook recipe and the roasted apples recipe is the commenter's own recipe inspired by the real recipe from the Cookbook, "Lucy's Baked Apples".

*Here is a site I found that is dedicated to some of the food found in Narnia (a few of the links don't work, but all of the food links do).*

***Before you scroll down any further though, let me just tell you: THERE WILL BE A NARNIA COOKBOOK OUT NEXT YEAR! An Unofficial one by the same lady (Dinah Bucholz) who wrote the Unofficial Harry Potter Cookbook. Yippee! Click here to find out more. I'm so excited!***

(These recipes are from the commenter DiGoRyKiRkE on the Narnia Web Community Forum: Turkish Delight & More. I do not take credit for them! [But I did make the recipes pretty with the images and all. heehee].)

Here are the other "Yummy Monday" Narnia posts for December:
Part 2: The Beavers' Marmalade Roll
Part 3: Edmund's Indulgent Turkish Delight
Part 4: Tea with Mr. Tumnus
And how about trying Scotch Eggs from The Narnia Cookbook?
