"Brewed from the bark of a native tree...everyone but infants drinks klah." - The Dragonlover's Guide To Pern

Chef's Note

This is an adaptation of the recipe included in The Dragonlover's Guide to Pern. I made slight modifications to match their description, including the optional warming liquor (rum). The flavor is rich and dark, and perfect for brisk mornings.


Making Klah

You will need:

  • 2 tablespoons sweet ground chocolate
  • 1/2 cup dark cocoa
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon dark instant hazelnut coffee
  • 1 pinch nutmeg
  • Cream, pure vanilla, and sugar (optional)
  • Splash of rum (optional)


  1. Mix all dry ingredients, except sugar.
  2. Use 2-4 tsp of the mixture per cup of boiling water.
  3. Stir well and add remaining ingredients as desired. The mixture should thicken like cocoa. Serve hot!
