Ever craving a rich, decadent hot chocolate and the store bought powder is just not hitting the spot? Then you have to try this French Hot Chocolate! Try it with different chocolates depending on your preference - even try adding a little bit of coffee for a deeper flavour!
¾ cups whole milk
¼ cup heavy cream, plus more for whipping
1 tsp white sugar (more if you prefer it sweeter)
115 grams chocolate, I use 70% or higher
1. Chop up all the chocolate to small pieces.
2. Add the milk, cream and sugar to a saucepan over medium heat. Whisk together until small bubbles form but do not let it boil.
3. Remove from heat and stir in the chocolate until melted. If need, return to low heat to melt the chocolate completely. Taste and add more sugar if need.
4. Serve the whipped cream, mini marshmallows and a dusting of cocoa powder (optional).
