Parisian Hot Chocolate

There is no excuse for hot cocoa from a mix.  Absolutely none. Hot chocolate is one of the easiest things to make, and homemade hot chocolate tastes so much better than anything from a box.  

This recipe is for a Parisian hot chocolate.  Using top-notch chocolate is essential to get the thick & rich consistency.  Hot chocolate is also easy to personalize.  Want an even thicker cocoa?  Use whole milk instead of 1%.  My favorite way to personalize this drink is to add a sprinkling of fleur de sel, or salt from Brittany, and whipped cream on top of my hot cocoa.  

Parisian Hot Chocolate

1/2 cup 1% milk
1.25 ounces chopped dark chocolate (I used 70%, but choose whatever type you like)

  1. Heat milk in a small saucepan. 
  2. When the milk is warm, whisk in chopped chocolate.  Whisk every so often until chocolate is dissolved.
  3. Cook on low heat until hot cocoa begins to thicken and is hot.
