Ron & Candys’ Decadent Hot Chocolate Recipe
This European-style hot chocolate is thick, decadent, and insanely chocolaty – perfect for a cozy winter evening.
Makes 2-3 servings
1½ cups (360ml) milk
½ cup (120ml) heavy cream
110g dark chocolate, coarsely chopped
50g milk chocolate, coarsely chopped
½ teaspoon vanilla extract
1 tablespoon of smooth peanut butter (optional)
- In a saucepan, heat milk and cream on medium heat until just below simmering point (it should be hot and steamy but not boiling).
- Remove from heat and add peanut butter (optional), dark and milk chocolate. Let stand for 1 minute, then add vanilla extract and whisk vigorously.
- Reheat on very low heat just until chocolate has completely melted and mixture is smooth(don’t let it boil). Pour into glasses and serve immediately. Alternatively, you can make this a few hours ahead of time and rewarm in a saucepan on low heat just before serving.
- Optional: add whipped cream, marshmallows, grated chocolate or cocoa to finish.
