There is not a single photo on the internet. I saw a bowl of macaroni sprinkled with cocoa, but that is not kakaós tészta. Everyone is busy making the trendy stuff these days. What about the dishes we grew up with? Shame on you Hungarian bloggers, it looks like I will be the first one putting it on line and in English no doubt. Homemade noodles are the best, but you can use ready-made fresh or dry noodles as long as they are broad noodles. The type Hungarians call szélesmetélt.

broad egg noodles for 4
2 Tbsp butter
1/4 cup raw cocoa
1/4 cup superfine sugar

• Bring a 4-liter pot of salted water to a boil.
• Add the noodles and boil until tender, 8 to 9 minutes. Drain.
• Pour the hot noodles though a large sieve and rinse under cold running water.
• Let the noodles drain completely.
• Melt the butter in the pot and add the drained noodles.
• Mix well to coat with butter. Cover and keep the noodles warm.
• Combine the cocoa with the sugar.
• Transfer the warm buttered noodles to a large, preheated serving bowl.
• Sprinkle each serving generously with the cocoa-sugar mixture.

My recipes are organized into a cookbook format. On top of the page click on the cookbook to get access to all my recipes. If I ever figure out how to add a printer friendly gadget I will add it. In the meantime feel free to cut and paste. Happy cooking!
