2-3 oz high quality dark chocolate, melted
3 tablespoons dark unsweetened cocoa*
1/2 cup light cream
1/2 cup milk
1 teaspoon sugar
Over low heat in a small pan, whisk together all ingredients. Cook on low for about 8-10 minutes, whisking continuously until the mixture thickens and is hot. Do not allow to boil or scorch. Serve in espresso cups.
Yield: about 4 small cups
*Hershey’s Special Dark dutch process cocoa is an affordable variety and is available at most grocery stores in the baking isle.
This is the espresso of hot chocolate. Very dark, very rich and very thick. I am a serious chocolate lover with a very high tolerance for richness and even I could only handle one tiny cup full. I used 3 oz of a plain dark chocolate bar but an interesting variation would be to use Mexican chocolate or a mint infused bar instead. french
That is my kind of drink! But then again, I thought the same thing about your kiwi smoothy… I like a lot of things.
i love it!
and also…you have the most beautiful plates/dishes/cups/saucers…wow!
That sounds fantastically rich! There might not be any better substance on this earth than dark chocolate 🙂
Yummy for my tummy. I also love the cup & saucer! Please share where you purchased it.
Wow, sounds decadent!
Thanks! I posted about the cup and saucer here.
Yum! Reminds me of the now long gone Chantico at Starbucks.
That’s what I was thinking when I made it! I was going to mention that, but I was worried I was the only one who remembered that drink-honestly the only thing I’ve ever had at a Starbucks!
OMFG that sounds and looks so darn DECADENT! Yum!!!
One little cup is fine when it’s this decadent and divine!
I recently made hot chocolate. Yours looks great! Love the photo, too!
Yes! Before I saw maggi’s comment, I was thinking Chantico, too. Sounds decadent!
Check out the Surreal Goumet’s recipe for Hot Chocolate for Consenting Adults! it is a wonderful variation and creme de menthe adds a little additional warmth- you can have it as a dessert.
Oh man, that sounds daaaaaaaaangerous. Like chocolate quicksand. Just gimme a straw and I think I’ll go drown in it 😉
That is the cutest little cup and saucer set I’ve ever seen! I want a whole set of those! 🙂
I can’t wait to try this!!
