Philippine tsokolate comes in several forms including tablea or small chocolate tablets used to make hot chocolate. The Spaniards taught Filipinos the art of making hot chocolate or tsokolate: drop tablea into boiling water and beat the hot mixture over heat using a batirol (wooden whisk) to make the tsokolate frothy. If you use a lot of tablea, the result is tsokolate eh which is thicker and richer compared to tsokolate ah. For a more decadent hot chocolate, you can add sugar, milk or ground peanuts.
