Hot Chocolate!

Okay this is my go to Recipe for hot chocolate all the time. It’s so simple and easy to prepare. Ofcourse I will list the ingredients especially the chocolates that I use in it for that extra thick richness and that perfect balance between sweet and dark cocoa. Now in no way I am getting paid to promote these products. I just found out that if I use these chocolates in just the right quantities then it will yield me that perfect Hot Chocolate.

Now this recipe yields about 2 cups of cocoa. What to do someone is always there to help me with it at home. I mean you can reduce down the ingredients if you want.

For the recipe:

  • Milk 1 1/2 cup: I use Amul toned milk
  • Cream 1/2 cup : Amul cream
  • Sugar: 2 tbsp
  • Cocoa : 1/2 cup Hershey’s Dark Cocoa
  • Morde Chocolate: 1/2 cup
  • Amul Dark Chocolate: 1/2 cup 90% cocoa.
  • Marshmallows: 3 for each cup. I don’t use a torch to burn them. I am not a fan of it.

Use a good pan for this recipe. Now take one cup of milk and half a cup of Cream and bring it to a simmer on low heat. Add in Cocoa at this stage and also finely chopped Chocolate half cup of Morde and Half cup of Amul Chocolate. Use a whisk to stir it. Add in sugar and the half cup of milk we will use to add in the end so as to ensure the consistency remains a bit liquidy and yet a bit thick. Now cover the pan and let it cook for a few minutes till it looks thick. You can also use one tbsp of Cornflour in this if you want to thicken it more. Just mix only 1 tbsp of Cornflour to the half cup milk you were adding in last. That will thicken the hot chocolate. I don’t use it but some of my friends love a thicker hot chocolate so I usually add in for them.

Take a cup and pour it till the top once done. Add in Marshmallows and you can always use Hershey’s sauce to top it up if you want. More chocolate will not harm anyone right! Enjoy it hot.
