Frothy Hot Chocolate

Yes...those are Disney princesses on my mug. Why do you ask?
It snowed. In October. And is freezing. So, I'm officially declaring it winter! And since it is winter, it is cold. And since it is cold, we need something warm and comforting in our bellies. And what's more classic for just that than hot chocolate? One night Michael and I were chilly and in the mood for some hot chocolate, so I used this recipe I had. I absolutely loved it-it was thick, chocolatey, and delicious-a perfect cup of hot chocolate in my opinion. Michael, as you are learning, does not share my taste preferences usually. This was no exception. He thought it just tasted like melted chocolate and he wanted one of those dried hot cocoa packets instead. *sigh* What am I going to do with him? This recipe definitely makes enough for 2 to drink a good amount, so if I make it again I shall have to half it, since it'll be just me. Such is life. Regardless! This is suuuuper yummy if you like the same kind of hot chocolate I do! So make it!


Simple, Frothy Hot Chocolate


Ingredients:
  • 1 1/2 cups milk (I used Skim Plus, but use whatever milk you prefer)
  • 2 1/2 tbsp. water
  • 2 1/2 tbsp. granulated sugar
  • 3 oz. bittersweet (about 70% cocoa) chocolate, finely chopped
Preparation:
  • In saucepan (or pot) combine milk, water, and sugar. Place over medium heat and whisk occasionally until the sugar dissolves.
  • Increase heat to medium-high and bring mixture to a boil.
  • Remove from heat and whisk in the chocolate. Then blend the mixture (I used a hand head mixer) for 1 minute. Should be smooth and frothy.
  • Snuggle up with your honey and drink until your toes turn warm :)
