Not everyone is old enough or unhealthy enough to care for my Grown Up Chocolate. This is my regular hot chocolate recipe, which is sooo much better than instant one and doesn’t really take that much more effort or money. This is an absolute hit with the kids, and a nice mug of this stuff is just what they need coming back from school in the winter.
Ingredients (for 2)
1 and ½ cup of low fat milk
½ tablespoon unsweetened cocoa
1 cup milk chocolate chips
Put the milk and the chocolate in a heavy saucepan and keep on medium heat stirring continuously until the chocolate melts completely. Add the cocoa powder and pour the mix into the mugs.
There are two ways to serve this. The first one is with a generous amount whipped cream on top, and a light dusting of cocoa on the cream itself. The second one is with a candy cane in it, to give extra sweetness and a hint of mint: the hot chocolate melts the sugar cane making a delicious caramel-like red and green slush on top. Mmmh. Who said this is just for the kids?
