Hot Chocolate & Cocoa

For all of those who have read my article in The Tennessean and wanted recipes for Hot Chocolate and Hot Cocoa, here it is!  Enjoy!

Hot Chocolate

Yield: 2 servings (because who wants to drink Hot Chocolate alone?!)

2 cups milk

3 to 4 ounces bittersweet or semisweet chocolate, chopped or broken into pieces (I prefer bittersweet)

Place the milk in a heavy saucepan and place over medium heat.  Heat until just below boiling, about 4 to 5 minutes.

Remove from the heat and whisk in the chocolate until melted. Pour into warm mugs and enjoy!

Hot Cocoa

Yield: 4 servings

4-1/2 cups + 2 tablespoons milk, divided

1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa

1/4 cup sugar

Place 4-1/2 cups of the milk in a medium saucepan and place over medium heat.  Heat until just below boiling, around 5 minutes.

Meanwhile, mix together the cocoa, sugar and the remaining milk to form a paste.  When the milk is ready, remove from the heat and stir in the cocoa mixture.  Pour into warm mugs and enjoy!
