Instruction: French Hot Chocolate
French hot chocolate is plain and simple to make. Get a pot on the stove on medium heat and then pour 1 ½ cups of whole milk followed by half a cup of double/heavy cream or whipped cream. Then drop 2 teaspoons of powered or confectionery sugar. Now this is completely optional but it is highly recommended to drop 1 shot of espresso. It is imperative that espresso is made not too light or hard. Espresso shot will surely add the extra kick and give a fine taste to the eventual drink as well. Now mix the pot so that sugar dissolves properly. It’s better to use an electric mixer so that the mixture is properly stirred and whisked. Continue the process till it approaches a slight simmer. Make sure not to boil it which would curdle the milk. As the mixture just starts to simmer then that’s the point to turn off the heat. Now put 8 ounces or 225g of dark chocolate in the pot. Make sure the chocolate is 80% dark chocolate. Since the heat is off therefore stir the mixture till the chocolate completely dissolves. Now the drink is ready so pour it in a glass. According to preferences, one can add whipped cream on top of the drink and add sprinkles of dark chocolate. You have just made French hot chocolate in minutes all without leaving your kitchen.
French Hot Chocolate Leftovers: Don’t Waste
Leftover need not be wasted and let it cool down to room temperature. Put it inside an airtight container e.g. jam jars, and then refrigerate it. When needed, it can be heated again in a microwave or in a saucepan with light heat. Your French hot chocolate will be just like new again.
