This is how the French do hot chocolat!
1 ½ cups whole milk
2 ½ Tbsp. water
2 ½ Tbsp. granulated sugar
3 oz. bittersweet chocolate
- Chop chocolate into small shavings. Measure 8 oz. of milk into a microwave-safe glass or bowl. Add the chocolate to the milk and microwave at full power for 1 minute.
- Carefully remove from the microwave and stir slowly to incorporate both the milk and chocolate thoroughly. Return to microwave and warm at full power for 1 minute or until chocolate is completely melted.
- Put the remaining milk into a saucepan, warm, and stir in the chocolate mixture until well incorporated.
- Cook the chocolate mixture over medium heat for 5 – 8 minutes, stirring to make sure the chocolate doesn’t burn, but is totally emulsified with the milk. Do not boil. Serve immediately.Voila!
