Rich & Thick Hot Chocolate

Rich, smooth, thick, sweet, heavenly…bottom line…this hot chocolate is what dreams are made of! You’ll steal the holiday show if you make this for your family, I promise!

Ingredients

  • 2 tbsp + 1 tsp cornstarch
  • 8 cups milk, divided
  • 8 oz dark chocolate bars (70% cacao), chopped
  • 8 oz semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • Pinch of salt
  • Recipe

    To a large saucepan on medium heat, add 7 cups milk. To the reserved cup of milk, whisk in cornstarch until blended well and set aside. When bubbles appear around edge of the pan, whisk in both chocolates, sugar, vanilla extract, and salt until blended and smooth. Whisk in cornstarch mixture. Taste a spoonful to see if it’s at your desired sweetness. Bring to a light boil, then reduce to simmer for 5 minutes. Turn off the heat and serve or pour in a crockpot set to warm. As it cools, it will continue to thicken. Serve with your hot chocolate topping favorites.

    I made this at least twice at Christmas and it is perfect! So rich and creamy! I love the dark chocolate flavor but might try using something a little sweeter for my kids next time…they haven’t developed a love for dark chocolate yet but I’m working on them. 😉 It’s so good, it’s almost like drinking dessert!
