The ultimate hot chocolate

The ultimate hot chocolate


1 person made this

About this recipe: I find that hot chocolate made from a good chocolate bar is much better than the kind made with cocoa powder. And my three daughters don't disagree!


Serves: 4 

  • 1L semi-skimmed milk
  • 100g dark chocolate, chopped
  • 200ml whipping cream

Prep:5min  ›  Cook:10min  ›  Ready in:15min 

  1. Heat about 200ml of the milk in a heavy saucepan over low heat. Stir in the chocolate pieces, and cook, stirring occasionally, until the chocolate is melted, about 5 minutes. Whisk in the rest of the milk, and cook until steaming but not boiling, about 5 minutes.
  2. Beat the whipping cream until stiff. Pour the hot chocolate into mugs and add a spoonful of whipped cream on top of each cup.
