Candy Bar Hot Chocolate

If it’s snowing where you’re at, like it’s snowing where I’m at, you’ll appreciate this…

I’m pretty sure that all this time you thought you knew what a mug of hot chocolate was supposed to taste like. But I’ll tell you something–if you’ve been pouring a small packet of dry powder into a cup and adding really hot water, perhaps…you don’t. In fact, from this day forth, you are liable to look on such a practice as complete hot chocolate blasphemy.

In the book The Polar Express, they described what the children drank on the train, as, “…hot cocoa as thick and rich as melted chocolate bars.”

Now we’re talking…

Candy Bar Hot Chocolate

Instructions

6 ounces Symphony chocolate, chopped
2 cups milk

Place the milk and chopped chocolate in a saucepan over medium heat. Stir gently to keep chocolate from staying at the bottom of the pan and getting too hot. If you like foam, stir with a whisk just until mixture gets steamy hot. Do not let it boil. Remove from heat. Add a dollop of whip cream to the bottom of a mug. Pour in hot chocolate.

Now, go sit down and put your feet up. You’re really going to love this.
