Rich and Creamy Hot Chocolate
Convenience doesn't have to come from a foil pouch.
Why This Recipe Works
Cocoa powder is good for many things, but when it comes to Rich and Creamy Hot Chocolate, there’s no substitute for honest-to-goodness chocolate. We went with semisweet chocolate chips as opposed to bar chocolate to eliminate the need to chop it up. Taking some inspiration from ganache frosting, we combined our chocolate with cream to form our hot chocolate base.
To divide our chocolate base into individual portions, we rolled it into small balls and froze them. Plopping the frozen balls in warm milk resulted in a lukewarm drink. Adding the frozen balls to cold milk and heating the mug in the microwave was a far superior method.
