ok guys...throw away the Stephen's hot chocolate mix! OK, you don't have to throw it away ...just save it for the kiddos. When you want creamy decadent hot cocoa, this is the one for you.
1 cup milk
1 cup half and half
8 teaspoons sugar
1 ounce semisweet chocolate, finely chopped
1 ounce unsweetened chocolate, finely chopped
1 tablespoon brown sugar
1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
In a small heavy saucepan over medium heat mix together the milk, half-and-half, sugar, chocolates, and brown sugar. Heat until the chocolate melts and the sugar dissolves. Do not bring to a boil, but make sure the mixture gets steaming hot. Reduce the heat and keep the chocolate hot. Place half of the mixture in a blender and mix until frothy. Return to the pan, add the vanilla, and pour into glasses. Serve immediately. This recipe doubles and triples easily. Choose your favorite eating chocolate for this recipe as that will really influence the flavor of the final drink. This makes 2 servings...Enjoy!!
