JUMP TO RECIPE

 

Nothing beats a Warming Rich and Decadent Hot Chocolate on a cold Winter day. It may be dark and cold outside, but holding that warm cup, sipping the liquid gold, everything is just better. It’s rich in chocolate flavor, made with a few real ingredients and very simple to make.

 

So I am the type of girl that loves ‘bad’ weather (although in Norway we say there doesn’t exist bad weather, only bad clothing – which is true). I say this because that day is the perfect excuse for a warming rich and decadent hot chocolate. Everything is dark, and we need something to comfort us. YAY.

As I live in a rainy part of Norway, I just can’t do it during all dark and rainy days. However, I do it a lot. I just can’t bear the thought of making that instant cocoa powder mixed with hot water. I simply don’t see the point in it. If you are going to drink your calories – drink super tasty calories!

 

And this is my go-to-bad-weather drink!

What we need is dark chocolate, milk (preferably whole), unsweetened cocoa powder, vanilla and perhaps more sugar if you prefer. That is it. When making hot chocolate with real chocolate, we need to keep the temperature down. Medium-low, as to not burn it.

In a medium saucepan, on medium low, stir the dark chocolate with milk. Once it’s melted, add in the rest of your ingredients. I’d suggest adding 1 tbsp of unsweetened cocoa powder, give it a taste – too bitter? Add a little sugar. Not rich enough? Add more unsweetened cocoa powder. Stir in vanilla extract or vanilla bean sugar if you like.

 

Serve with whipped cream or marshmallows. Get yourself a cookie and read a book while watching the weather outside.
