Ingredients

  • 1 quart 1% low-fat milk
  • 6 ounces high quality bittersweet chocolate, finely chopped
  • 1/2 cup Dutch process cocoa
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/4 cup hot, strong-brewed coffee

How to really make it

Step 1

In top part of a double boiler, mix milk, chocolate, cocoa, and sugar. Place over simmering water and cook, stirring occasionally with a whisk, until chocolate has melted and mixture is smooth and hot, about 20 minutes. (Posess zero double boiler? Heat chocolate mixture in a small saucepan over a larger pan of boiling water.) Stir in coffee and heat through.

Step 2

Pour into mugs, top with whipped cream and also the chocolate shavings, if desired, and serve while warm.
