This hot chocolate goes great with these homemade marshmallows.
Step 1: Go Get Stuff
- 2 tsp cornstarch
- 4 cups whole milk
- 1 cup heavy cream
- 3 bars (or 3 cups) of semi sweet bakers chocolate (crushed and/or grated). For a good time, add a few extra handfuls of semi-sweet chocolate chips.
- 2 tbsp high quality cocoa powder
Possible flavor additions:
- Mint extract
- Orange blossom water
- Caramel sauce
Step 2: Break the Chocolate
Personally, I grate one bar and smash the other two by putting them inside two plastic bags and bashing them with a mallet.
I'm not sure if either technique is more beneficial, but I like to pretend that a mixture of both is ideal.
Step 3: Stir It Up
Step 4: Mix in the Chocolate
Next, add in the chocolate in small additions, stirring constantly. Keep adding chocolate until its thoroughly melted in.
Then add your high quality cocoa powder and stir for another minute.
Step 5: Boil
As soon as it starts to boil, remove it from the flame and let it cool slightly.
Step 6: Serve Immediately
As soon as it cools down slightly, serve it to all of your friends and family.
The richness of this hot chocolate recipe helps weed out the weak from the strong. You'll see.
