stocking Homemade Hot Chocolate

Homemade Hot Chocolate

  • 3 1/2 cups whole milk
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream
  • 8 ounces chocolate, preferably dark (bittersweet)
  • 3 teaspoons maple syrup or natural sweetener of choice
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
Directions:
1) Chop the chocolate very finely.
2) In a medium saucepan, bring the milk and cream to a low simmer over medium heat, whisking occasionally.
3) Add the chocolate, maple syrup, vanilla, and salt. Whisk vigorously until all of the chocolate has melted. Cook for an additional 4 minutes, whisking constantly.
4) Serve with maple whipped cream (recipe follows) if desired.
Serves 4 generously
Maple Whipped Cream
Ingredients:
  • 1/2 cup heavy whipping cream
  • 2 teaspoons maple syrup (more if you like your whipped cream very sweet)
  • 1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
Directions:
Place all ingredients in a large bowl and beat until stiff.

I posted this somewhere else here but forgot where - sorry if this is a double but this is too good a recipe not to share. It is very rich though.
