Did you know that Italian hot chocolate is different? I didn't, until I saw jessyratfink's hot chocolate.
The first thing that comes to my mind whenever I think of hot chocolate is its creaminess, but I was surprised to see that that chocolate was completely liquid and not as thick as the one I am used to drink here.
For this reason, I decided to do a little experiment: I googled "hot chocolate" (in English) and looked at the photos. All of them were showing a liquid hot chocolate. Right after that I googled "cioccolata calda" and what I saw in those photos was the typical hot chocolate that I grew up drinking.
I finally realized that what is known as hot chocolate in English speaking countries is different than the one we make in Italy. The one we make here is creamy, and that's probably one of the things I love the most about it.

In this instructable I am going to show you how to make the typical hot chocolate made in Italy. It's very easy and fast to make, and very similar to the American recipe, except for one simple ingredient that makes the difference! :)

Note: I've been reading that many of you think that this is pudding. Pudding is thicker than this hot chocolate. It may look much thicker because it took me a while to take photos and the chocolate stabilized during that time. Please check out "cioccolata calda" here so you can see that it is NOT pudding!

Step 1: Ingredients

Dose for 1 cup of hot chocolate:
  • 2 tsp of cocoa powder
  • 2 tsp of sugar
  • 1 tsp of potato starch (or corn starch)
  • 125ml (1/2 cup) of milk 
<p>is it possible to melt chocolate instead of using cocoa powder????? </p>
<p>I made this, and it was delicious! I ate it all before I could take a picture! </p>
<p>super yummy </p>
<p>its nice i will try this </p>
It's look so delicious I absolutely gonna try it !
I want to make this mainly to see if the chocolate becomes non-Newtonian to some extent due to the corn starch! I've never heard of this type of beverage before.
<p>thanks :)</p>
<p>Glad you like it :)</p>
<p>I Love Choclolates</p>
<p>Good, I hope you love this too :)</p>
<p>Great Work </p>
