ABSOLUTELY DECADENT chocolate milk mix you keep cold in the fridge and mix with ice cold milk whenever the craving strikes. First, let me warn you: it’s evil, rich and is only to be enjoyed in moderate amounts. But once you take a sip of chocolate milk made with this easy-to-make homemade mix, you may never buy the syrupy stuff again.
Heat cream over medium-high heat until slightly boiling. Add chocolate pieces and turn off heat. Whisk slowly until chocolate is melted and mixture is very smooth. Pour into a container and keep in the fridge up to two weeks. Mix with cold or warm milk, depending on how frightful the weather outside is.
Mixture, after refrigerated, will be quite thick. Just stir well in cold milk and you’ll be fine.
It has come to my attention that the quality/brand of chocolate used in this recipe can drastically affect how this mix performs in the fridge. Reports range from silky smooth to hard as a rock. The mix is still delicious—just expect varying results!
A sweet and tangy mint syrup served with shredded Persian cucumber over ice is just the refreshing drink you need to beat the heat!
This recipe makes about 1 gallon of syrup. You’ll have plenty left over to give away as a great homemade gift.
1 tablespoon is enough for an 8oz glass of the julep.
