Chocolate is everybody’s favourite beverage, and indulging in a hot cup of this awesome and tempting hot chocolate is guaranteed to be your new food fantasy. It is delightful, mouth-watering, creamy, rich and all those adjectives that I can ever use will fall short to describe this liquid gold. It is worth every single calorie..cause well, how often do you get to indulge in such food frenzies?
This is my take on the classic hot chocolate that is prepared with just cocoa powder, sugar, vanilla and milk. It is just as simple with basic ingredients but a lot more home style and comforting.
This recipe is for 1 mug of hot chocolate (1 serving)
- 1/2 table-spoon of cocoa powder
- Cream – 1 tablespoon
- Choco chips or a small chocolate slab cut into even sized pieces.
- 1 table-spoon of powdered sugar
- 1 table-spoon of nutella or any hazelnut chocolate spread (optional)
- 1 table-spoon of sweetened condensed milk (try amul mithai mate or milk maid by nestle available in local outlets or malls)
- 2-3 drops of vanilla essence
- 1 1/2 cups of milk
This has no steps as you can make the hot chocolate the way you like. You can just warm the milk first , add all the ingredients at the same time and then let the hot chocolate slightly thicken up on low heat. Or:
First: Heat the milk in a pan and then add the cream and sugar, lower the heat to let the cream and sugar cook out whilst avoiding the loss of texture of cream at the same time. Next, you can add the remaining ingredients and stir as you let the mixture cook and thicken up on low heat.
And thats how simple it it to make the ultimate hot chocolate. You can add some more fresh cream or even whipped cream to top it. Flavour it with a cinnamon stick to take the hot chocolate to a whole new level. Serve it hot and enjoy! ❤ 🙂
