There’s nothing quite so rich and decadent as a cup of hot chocolate during the holidays. Why use mixes and powders, when the real thing tastes better and takes just a little bit longer to make. Here is an easy recipe that I like to make often. Enjoy!
2 oz 85% dark chocolate
1/2 teaspoon (or more) cane sugar
1 cup milk (I use almond milk)
marshmallows, whipping cream, peppermint sticks, extra chocolate for garnish
Heat the chocolate in a small saucepan on low until melted.
Add the sugar and milk, whisk until blended. Maintain a low heat, whisking often until desired temperature is reached.
Divide among two 4-5 oz cups. Garnish with (toasted) marshmallows and fresh chocolate shavings. Or, add a dollop of whipped cream and crushed peppermint sticks.
