Hot Chocolate

Making delicious, thick, velvety hot chocolate at home is easy! Unsweetened cocoa powder is the key. It has a richer, deeper, more chocolatey taste than commercial sweetened drinking chocolates, plus it’s a twofer. It can also be used for baking. Although hot chocolate can be made in the microwave, I think that it tastes more delicious when it is made on the stovetop. The extra 1-2 minutes of cooking allows the chocolate to fully bloom. Recipes usually ask for equal amounts of sugar and unsweetened cocoa, but it’s really a matter of taste. In my house, we like our chocolate less sweet, and dense, with 2 teaspoons of sugar to 1 tablespoon of cocoa. See what works best for you. Adjust the amounts if you prefer it richer or sweeter.
