Italian Hot Chocolate
7 oz. Dark Chocolate – Chopped
4 Tbsp. Sugar (optional)
5 Tbsp. Cocoa – Unsweetened and sifted
2 Cups + 2 Tbsp. Milk
1 Tsp. Cornstarch
In a small bowl whisk ½ cup of milk with the cornstarch. If you want to add sugar to the cocoa you can. Sometimes dark chocolate can be too bitter and this will sweeten it up. If you decide to add the sugar to the recipe, mix it in a bowl with the cocoa.
In a small pot 1 1/2 cups plus 2 Tbsp. of milk. Heat until it starts to boil and reduce to a low heat. Whisk in the cornstarch mixture. Add the cocoa slowly until the milk becomes smooth. Add the dark chocolate and stir until it is melted. Served topped with whipped cream.
