Treat Yourself To The Perfect Cup Of Hot Chocolate

When it comes to wintertime, you really can’t go wrong with a delicious cup of hot chocolate. Rich, aromatic, and utterly blissful, it’s the perfect nightcap on a cold winter day – especially when you’re snuggled by the fireplace with a good book and a cozy blanket. But for me, there’s more to this comforting drink than pouring a pack of instant mix in a mug and sticking it in the microwave on high. A good cup of how chocolate requires a little more effort, so this year, go the extra mile and make a cup that’ll melt away your winter blues and leave you pining for more.

3 oz of excellent quality bittersweet chocolate

2 cups of milk

(optional) marshmallows and fun spices like cayenne, cinnamon or salt

A note on hot chocolate vs. how cocoa: While both are delicious, they’re not the same treat. Hot cocoa comes from cocoa powder, and hot chocolate is made with melted real chocolate. The latter is much richer, and I think, more delicious so I’m sharing how to make it with you today. If you’re more of a hot cocoa kind of person, I recommend TCHO Natural Cocoa Powder. It’s super indulgent.

Step 1: Warm your milk in a pot on medium heat. If you’re going to add some spices, do so now. I either like to throw in some cinnamon or a dash of cayenne for a gourmet kick.

Step 2: Add your crushed chocolate (about 1.5 ounces per cup of milk) into hot, but not boiling milk and stir stir stir until it melts.

Step 3: Pour into your mug and add a marshmallow.

Want to make sure your winter treat is extra tasty? Opt for at least 70% chocolate, which makes the flavor deep and rich, but not bitter, and use 2% milk. Hot chocolate is no place to skimp. Enjoying yourself in moderation is better than the no-taste low fat stuff. Enjoy!
