Hot Chocolate

Cooking Time: Half an hour.

Makes: 6 to 7 cups.

This hot chocolate recipe is my own, and maybe someone else in the world uses the same ingredients to make hot chocolate.

I always like my hot chocolate thick and more on the milk chocolate side. However, if you are a dark chocolate lover, you can substitute milk chocolate with dark chocolate, and use dark cocoa powder and less sugar/sweet condensed milk.

I use a small amount of coffee to enhance the taste of my hot chocolate, you can also use cinnamon, nutmeg or any other spices to enhance the flavor.

Ingredients:

Milk 4 cups and a little more

Cooking Chocolate (Milk) 200 gms

Cocoa Powder 4 tblsp

Milk 1/8 cups

Coffee 1 tblsp

Sweet Condensed Milk 1/8 cup or according to taste

Cream 3/4 cups

Method:

  1. Heat one cup of milk in a pan.
  2. Once it starts simmering add chocolate and keep stirring occasionally till the chocolate is completely melted.
  3. Add the rest of the milk and cook it till it starts simmering.
  4. In a small bowl form a thick paste with cocoa powder and milk.
  5. Turn off the flame of the milk mixture and add the thick cocoa paste (mentioned in 4), a little quantity at a time while continuously stirring.
  6. Once the cocoa mixture is incorporated with the milk mixture, turn on the flame and let the hot chocolate simmer.
  7. Add coffee and mix well.
  8. Add sweet condensed milk.
  9. Turn off the flame once again, take out a little amount of hot chocolate and let it cool at room temperature for 1 to 2 minutes. Now add any good quality dairy cream and mix well.
