  • About

For a intensely chocolate liquid experience, use high-quality bittersweet chocolate. Hot water helps the flavor blossom. And whipped cream is not an option, but a must.


  • 2 ounces bittersweet chocolate, finely chopped
  • ¼ cup hot water
  • 2


Melt the chocolate in the water in the top part of a double boiler over simmering water. Transfer to a blender, add the sugar, and turn on the machine. Slowly add the hot milk through the feed tube. Pour into a warmed cup and serve hot, with a dollop of whipped cream.
