Daves Awesome Hot Chocolate





Introduction: Daves Awesome Hot Chocolate

My hot chocolate is awesome. I know this because everyone that has ever tasted it has said so.

This recipe took me about a week of tasty trial and error to create. I set out to create an ultimate hot chocolate recipe.

I succeeded.

It's awesome in kind of a romantic way. It wants to take you out on a date and be a gentleman. It wants to buy you roses and lay you down by the fire. It's hot hot chocolate is what I'm trying to say. It is both literally and figuratively hot chocolate.

Here is what you will need. Be warned! This is the ultimate hot chocolate. Therefore altering it will, by definition, be a lesser form of hot chocolate. If you make this hot hot chocolate recipe and you alter it I cannot be held responsible for the disappointment you will feel.
  1. A double boiler
  2. Hand blender
  3. 1/8 teaspoon ground ginger
  4. 1/8 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  5. 1/8 + 1/16 teaspoon ground cloves
  6. 1/2 cup dark chocolate chips
  7. 1/4 cup white chocolate chips
  8. 5 cups of organic whole milk

Step 1: Warm Up the Milk

You want the milk to be nice and ready to accept Hot Chocolating. Cold milk cannot be hot chocolate, so get it nice and warm. Just a little steamy.

Cooking milk will cause it to form a film on top. You don't want that film so as soon as it starts to form, take it off.

While that's warming up, move on to the next step.

Step 2: Double Boil You Some Hotness

Put the chocolate chips and spices into the double boiler. Start double boilin'.

You just want to melt the chocolate. While it's melting, stir it a little bit.

Step 3: Scrape the Hot Chocolate Into the Warm Milk

This is the best part.

Combine the melted chocolate with the warmed milk and use the hand blender to mix it together thoroughly.

Serve with two marshmallows per cup of hot chocolate.

    I love this .....soooooo good

    If there were no difference between milks, nobody would be vegan or purchase certain brands or certain types. But since milk choices are up to the consumer, you don't have to use organic. I'm sure most people would just prefer the taste. But I know someone who works for a dairy, whose milk tastes much better than a common "organic" brand, and it's predominantly organic but just can't claim it. While the "organic" brand has gotten in trouble for a few things and alleged to not always be organic. But I myself would only purchase Organic Valley brand, unless I really knew the company. I mainly use vegan milk myself though.

    Hot chocolote with ginger and cinnamon.. Mmm, sounds good.
    Thanks for sharing.

    I would beg to differ on the altering comment. Whipped cream would make this ~the~ ultimate hot chocolate. I wish I had a double boiler in my apartment. Might have to pick one up just for this.

    A double boiler is simply a bowl or pan sitting inside a saucepan or pot. No need for anything fancy.

    I beg to differ on your whipped cream, marshmallow fluff however, would make it the ultimate hot chocolate. It would have to be super hot hot chocolate though, get that marshmallow nice and melted..

    Nah. Whipped cream > marshmallows. That's just my opinion though. I only like marshmallows when they're toasted. Hmm, but that is a good idea to use fluff (I somehow like that more than marshmallows).

    HOW ABOUT BOTH!!! HAHAHA, whipped cream AND marshmellows, double the awesomeness!!
