Fun to read the recipes. I tried lots of different hot chocolate recipes until I picked up a little hot chocolate how-to recipe card by my local artisan chocolate shop, and it's not only the best but the simplest: Scald milk, turn off stove, drop in chocolate pieces, wait five minutes, whisk. You can add in/on, but it's the best basic recipe I've ever made and had. Try it!

Hi BerryBaby, The shop makes fancy, premium chocolates of every 'origin' and percentage, but also sells bags of that high-quality chocolate in pieces affordably priced. I buy these small bags. The recipe doesn't specify what milk or what chocolate, so for me it's a 'base' recipe. I use whole milk and 60-80% chocolate, but you could use anything. You could also just use pieces from a good commercial bar of chocolate (say, 80% Lindt or something) if you're not close to a good chocolate maker. :-)

Maybe it's weird, but I like stirring in just a little tahini into my hot chocolate.
