Making Čokolešnik.

I was told by a friend that Čokolešnik makes a delicious breakfast, so I gave it a shot this morning. I should have realized the instructions were in Slovene - here's my first attempt at making a local favourite:
Bring the milk to a boil.

Pour the milk into a bowl.

Get yer Čokolešnik!

Add two tablespoons to the milk.

Overall, it came out well. Čokolešnik tastes like Cream of Wheat but not as thick and with a healthy dose of chocolate and hazelnuts thrown inside the mix. So, yes, I liked it. However, I have a feeling I may have erred. Maybe it was too runny? Did I boil too much milk?

The propper way to do Čokolešnik is.... well... any way :)

Just add as mzch or as little of ingredients as you like. I like(d) mine sticky to the point of using it as mortar, but I know people who like it runny as a soup.

Huh, that's interesting. Mine was runny but it was still delicious. The instructions on the box were in Slovenian, so I had to wing it.
