Triple Chocolate Hot Chocolate|
This delicious hot cocoa has extra depth and richness from using three different chocolates, all of which add a different and exciting flavor to the cocoa. Make sure to use high quality chocolates for the best flavor. We like to top these with dollops of real whipped cream and even more chocolate - but they are also great without any extra garnishes.
4 cups milk
1/4 cup sugar
1/4 cup unsweetened Dutch processed cocoa
2 ounces chopped bittersweet chocolate
2 ounces chopped milk chocolate
Whipped cream (optional)
Bittersweet and milk chocolate shavings (optional)
Combine the milk, sugar, cocoa, and salt in a large heavy saucepan over medium-high heat. Whisking constantly, bring to a boil. Add the chopped chocolates and remove from the heat. Whisk the mixture until the chocolate melts to make a thick and smooth hot chocolate. Ladle or pour into mugs and cups. Top with the whipped cream and sprinkle with the chocolate shavings. Serve hot.
