Hot Chocolate


Hot Chocolate

  1. 3 cups whole milk
  2. 3 tablespoons sugar
  3. 1 teaspoon instant espresso powder
  4. Pinch of salt
  5. 4 ounces semisweet chocolate, finely chopped
  6. 3 ounces bittersweet chocolate, finely chopped
  7. 1/4 cup heavy cream

Whipped cream

  1. 1/2 cup heavy cream
  2. 1 tablespoon sugar
  1. In a medium saucepan, combine the milk with the sugar, espresso powder and salt. Cook over moderate heat until the milk is steaming and a few bubbles appear around the edge of the pan, about 5 minutes. Remove from the heat and add the chopped chocolates. Let stand for 1 minute, then whisk until smooth. Whisk in the cream and keep warm.
  2. In a medium bowl, beat the cream with the sugar until firmly whipped.
  3. Ladle the hot chocolate into cups or mugs. Top with dollops of whipped cream and serve.
