Some of you wanted my hot chocolate recipe. So I will type it up below but there are a few words of warning.
The first two ingredient's CANNOT be changed or substituted. If they are the bonding process does not work right and the chocolate is not smooth.
This is also very very fattening. I only make it when I have company over or go to a friends house. The recipe makes one measuring cup of the drink, this does not seem like a lot but because of the richness and the fat content I can drink about 1/4 of that and be happy.
Hot Chocolate or Mouth Orgasm in a Cup.
1/2 cup whole milk
1/2 cup heavy cream
3.5 oz dark or bitter sweet chocolate.
Simmer milk and cream until hot but not boiling. Add small chunks of the chocolate and stir until melted.
That is it. I do for my chocolate use the Lindt Dark Chili Chocolate bar, the chili adds something to the flavor and makes it just a bit better. I am very serious about not substituting the milk and the heavy cream for something with a lower fat content. The milk fats help with the chocolate and using a lesser fat content the flavor, thickness, and texture of the drink changes.
For those out there who might think about using fat free half and half don't. Fat Free half and half is nothing but skim milk with thickener. Anyway enjoy.
