Hot Chocolate

By • February 10, 2010 • 2 Comments

Author Notes: I've been wanting to make hot chocolate with real chocolate for years. Today I finally did. I'm giving you the recipe for one snow-bound girl, but you can double it for two people and hopefully that other person will be someone who is cozy to hang out with on a snowy day. Giulia Melucci

Serves 1

  • 2 ounces dark chocolate, 64% or more
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1 teaspoon agave nectar (or sugar if you must)
  1. Melt the chocolate in a microwave or over a double boiler.
  2. Heat the milk with the sugar in a saucepan over medium heat.
  3. Add the chocolate and whisk away until it is combined and gently simmering.
  4. Pour into a mug and devour this rich delight.

I use beet sugar a great deal to lighten up the glycemic index, but agave nectar? Hot Chocolate? Love the idea. Will have to try.

Lovely pic, and like the idea of agave nectar. I make a ganache that I stir into steamed milk and it uses sugar. You've inspired to think outside the norm in this case.
