I have tried several recipes until I found the perfect one and I am sticking with it.
This hot chocolate recipe is not one of those “ready in 5 minutes” using a macrowave recipes, but it is totaly worth the 15 minutes it takes to prepare.
As this hot chocolate is sweet, thick and rich, I believe that it could be easily served instead of dessert.
Try it out and let me know what you think!
20 grams (1 table spoon) butter
4 tea spoons (7 grams) corn starch
1 table spoon cocoa powder
130 grams chocolate (milk or dark – whichever you prefer)
250 ml. milk
In a small saucepan heat the butter, until it melts. Add the corn starch and cocoa powder. Stir until they dissolve in the butter. Add the milk and let it heat up. Just before it begins to boil, turn the heat down to medium-low and add the chocolate. Stir frequently for 5-7 minutes or until the mixture starts to thicken.
Serve hot or cold on ice.
