Growing up on the colder states, we were accustomed to wake up each morning served with a cup of hot chocolate. And it turned out to be a surprise when we learned that a lot of people are not used to drinking hot chocolates! So we decided to look for our favorite hot chocolate recipe online and share it to those who want to learn how to prepare it.
Chocolate recipe: Hot Chocolate
The things you need are; 8 cups of whole milk, 1 cup of sugar, 1 tea spoon of vanilla extract, and about 6 ounces of bittersweet chocolate.
Chop your chocolates into small pieces and place them in a mixing bowl. Chopping the chocolates will make it easier for the pieces to melt or mix with other ingredients.
Heat the milk over medium to low heat until you see steam rising from it. Keep in mind that you don't want to boil your milk. So, once the steam starts to rise immediately add the sugar and the vanilla extract. Stir until the sugar has dissolved, and turn off your stove.
Get a cup of the milk and pour it on your chopped chocolate. Let the chocolate melt, and whisk it if needed. Make sure that all of the small pieces melt. Continue adding the rest of the milk until all of it has mixed with the chocolate. Serve it in cups and it with the ingredients you should get about 10 servings of good old hot chocolate drink.
Together with this recipe, which I found on the internet, came a few tips and tricks that you are also helpful if it's your first time making chocolate drink.
It's not necessary to use a whole cup of sugar for it. Sweetness varies according to our preference.
So, you might want to adjust the sugar to match the sweetness that you like.
If you prefer, you can substitute 2 percent milk. The main purpose of using whole milk is to give your drink the best texture.
Use the best chocolates available. Lindt, Tobler, and Valhrona are good choices. We've even tried making with Godiva and it tastes great.
