The Best Hot Chocolate Recipe

If you are feeling extra indulgent or fancy (as it should be), you can add to your Hot Chocolate half-and/or double the amount of heavy cream right before serving.



This Hot Chocolate recipe will serve 4 people


3 tablespoons of cocoa powder (preferably Dutch-processed) plus additional for serving


3 cups whole milk


6 oz semisweet chocolate finely chopped


3 tablespoons demerara sugar or granulated Sugar



Whipping cream lightened with honey (for serving).




Step 1

In a medium saucepan, bring 3/4 cup of water to a boil over medium heat. Add 3 tablespoons. Cocoa powder should be mixed until there are no lumps. Add milk to the mixture and bring it back to a boil. Mix in the sugar and chocolate. Continue to cook for about 5 minutes, stirring frequently, until smooth and creamy.

Step 2

Divide hot chocolate between mugs. Add whipped cream to the top and sprinkle with cocoa powder.
