Real Hot Chocolate

Updated on February 26, 2015

I think the key to "real hot chocolate" should be real chocolate, don't you think? There is a silkiness and richness that comes with using chocolate, that cannot be achieved with cocoa.

Real hot chocolate is very rich and deeply satisfying. It almost is a dessert in itself not needing an accompaniment.

It is only made with milk and chocolate, and I like to top it with a dollop of whipped cream. Since it is so rich, I would recommend serving it in smaller cups as opposed to the big mugs. This recipe should make 2-3 servings.


  • 1 cup milk
  • 2 oz. chocolate
  • dash of cayenne pepper, optional
  1. Heat the milk and the chocolate over medium heat until almost melted. There will be specks of chocolate that can't be dissolved by stirring.
  2. Pour it into a tall container and use an immersion blender to dissolve the chocolate completely until very smooth and a little foamy. Serve right away.
