HOT CHOCOLATE RECIPE

This simple but decadent recipe uses a combination of cocoa powder and dark chocolate to create a rich chocolate flavor.

INGREDIENTS

Serves 6

4 cups whole milk

1 cup GUANAJA 70% dark chocolate

1 TBSP VALRHONA COCOA POWDER

INSTRUCTIONS
  • Bring the milk to a boil.
  • Pour the hot liquid slowly onto the VALRHONA COCOA POWDER in a bowl, and whisk vigorously until there are no more lumps.
  • Melt the chocolate in a microwave in a large bowl.
  • Pour 1/3 of the liquid onto the melted GUANAJA 70% . Mix to a smooth, elastic, shiny texture. Then pour the rest of the liquid in the mixture while maintaining the same texture, and strain into a pan.
  • Heat the chocolate mixture just to a boil, whipping vigorously to obtain a light and creamy froth.
