Description

An ultra-rich hot chocolate that’s stirred together on the stove-top and then topped with a rich chocolate whipped cream. This is the hot chocolate of your dreams – perfect for warming up on a cold, snowy day!

Ingredients

  • ½ cups Semi-sweet Chocolate Chips Or Chopped Chocolate
  • 4 cups Milk
  • ½ cups Sugar
  • ¼ cups High Quality Cocoa Powder
  • 1 dash Salt
  • ½ cups Heavy Whipping Cream
  • 1-½ Tablespoon Powdered Sugar
  • 1 teaspoon Cocoa Powder

Preparation

Hot Chocolate:
Chop the chocolate if using a bar. Set aside. Add milk, sugar and cocoa powder to a medium size pot, and whisk over medium heat until the cocoa powder is well incorporated. Continue stirring over heat until the milk is warm, then add the chopped chocolate. Stir until the chocolate is melted and the mixture is smooth. Stir in a dash of salt.

Carefully pour into cups. Top with whipped cream and serve! I’ve found it easiest to pour into a small pitcher or large glass measuring cup with a spout and then into glasses.

Whipped Cream:
Optional, but completely delicious! Beat heavy cream, powdered sugar and 1 teaspoon of cocoa powder with a mixer until stiff peaks form. Spoon generously on top of your hot chocolate

Spicy Mexican variation:
Add a 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon, plus a dash of cayenne pepper with the salt. It’s amazing!
