How do you make the best hot chocolate?

Chef Heather Terhune shares her easy recipe for a rich, homemade hot chocolate.

Hot Chocolate Recipe

Makes 4 servings

Ingredients:

1 cup whole milk, divided

1 cup heavy whipping cream

4 tablespoons granulated sugar

3/4 teaspoons cornstarch

Pinch of salt

4 1/2 ounces dark chocolate, finely chopped from a bar (55 percent cocoa is Chef Terhune's preference)

How to Make It:

  1. In a medium, heavy-bottomed saucepan over medium-high heat, whisk together 3/4 cup of the milk, cream, and sugar. Heat, whisking occasionally until the mixture starts to bubble around the edges.
  2. Meanwhile, in a small bowl, whisk together the remaining 1/4 cup milk and cornstarch until well combined. As soon as the milk mixture bubbles around the edges, add in the milk and cornstarch mixture and whisk until heated through, about 1 minute.
  3. Reduce heat to medium-low, then add in the chocolate and pinch of salt, whisk until completely dissolved into the milk mixture, and is thick enough to coat a spoon, about 5 minutes.
  4. Remove from heat and pour into cups. Keep in mind that it's super-rich, so use espresso cups.
  5. Garnish with a dollop of whipped cream and top with chocolate shavings if desired. Serve immediately, as the drink will continue to thicken as it cools.
