Serves: 4
Ingredients
  • 4 cups of whole milk
  • 8 ounces of chocolate (60% cacao, preferably)
  • 3 teaspoons of powdered sugar
  • 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract
  • ⅛ teaspoon of salt
Instructions
  1. Finely chop the chocolate into small pieces. The pieces have to be able to dissolve in the liquid.
  2. Place the milk into a small, thick-bottomed pot on low heat and bring to a low simmer. Whisk occasionally to ensure the milk doesn’t stick to the bottom of the pan.
  3. Add the vanilla, powdered sugar, salt and chocolate, whisking vigorously until the chocolate melts.
  4. Heat for another 4 minutes, constantly stirring.
  5. Serve with a dollop of whipped cream for some extra decadence and enjoy!
