World's best hot chocolate
best hot chocolate
Winter kept it cold outside, but the warmth by the fire was welcomed by all. After some wonderful food, I prepared everyone some hot chocolate. Not the kind you can buy in small packets, but real hot chocolate. The kind with actual chocolate. I also added some cayenne pepper to enhance the flavor. While I believe I added a wee bit more cayenne than I should have, I have since corrected my formula to a tamer, and more pleasant concoction.
(8 large, or 16 regular servings)
- 12 oz. sugar
- 8 oz. cocoa powder
- 32oz. 60% cocoa chocolate chips
- 16 cups water
How to make it:
- Mix everything together.
- To which you should also add: 1/2 – 3/4 tsp of cayenne pepper. And if it is really cold outside, a healthy splash or whiskey/whisky or brandy never hurt either. Enjoy!
