How to Make Thick Hot Chocolate

In winter, hot food is necessary. Thick rich hot chocolate is a commodity in seemingly short supply these days. With this in mind, I present to you this  hot chocolate recipe. This hot chocolate goes great with these homemade marshmallows.

step 1 Go get stuff
 You will need:

– 2 tsp cornstarch
– 4 cups whole milk
– 1 cup heavy cream
– 3 bars (or 3 cups) of semi sweet bakers chocolate (crushed and/or grated). For a good time, add a few extra handfuls of semi-sweet chocolate chips.
– 2 tbsp high quality cocoa powder

Possible flavor additions:
– Mint extract
– Orange blossom water
– Caramel sauce

step 2 Break the chocolate
Grate and/or smash the chocolate into small bits.

Personally, I grate one bar and smash the other two by putting them inside two plastic bags and bashing them with a mallet.

I’m not sure if either technique is more beneficial, but I like to pretend that a mixture of both is ideal.

step 3 Stir it up
Pour the milk into a cooking pot. Thoroughly stir the cornstarch into the milk.

step 4Mix in the chocolate
Heat the milk over a low flame and start by adding in a cup of heavy cream.

Next, add in the chocolate in small additions, stirring constantly. Keep adding chocolate until its thoroughly melted in.

Then add your high quality cocoa powder and stir for another minute.

step 5 Boil
Raise the flame and bring the hot chocolate up to a slight boil.

As soon as it starts to boil, remove it from the flame and let it cool slightly.

step 6 Serve immediately
It’s not called hot chocolate for nothin’.

As soon as it cools down slightly, serve it to all of your friends and family.

The richness of this hot chocolate recipe helps weed out the weak from the strong. You’ll see.
