John Scharffenberger’s Classic Drinking Chocolate

Serves 6 to 12

This can be made up to 3 days ahead and refrigerated, but if you use the spices, keep in mind their flavor intensifies over time.

Ingredients

  • 2-1/2 cups whole milk
  • 4 ounces SCHARFFEN BERGER 99% Cacao Unsweetened Chocolate, coarsely chopped
  • 1/3 cup granulated sugar
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
  • 3/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon (optional)
  • 1/8 teaspoon cayenne pepper (optional)

Preparation

Heat the milk in a medium saucepan over medium heat until it is hot to the touch. Whisk in the chocolate and sugar and continue whisking for 1 to 2 minutes until the sugar has dissolved. Whisk in the vanilla and the cinnamon and cayenne, if using. Reduce the heat to low. The chocolate may be made ahead; it will thicken as it sits.

Serve in demitasse cups or mugs depending on desired portion.

Note: For foamy hot chocolate, mix with an immersion blender just before serving. Or make hot chocolate ahead and reheat and froth it with the steam wand of an espresso machine. Or, top individual servings with frothed milk.

  • Swap these 99% Unsweetened Chocolate Petite Baking Squares for your regular baker’s chocolate, and boost the premium flavor of your brownies, cookies, bars and other desserts.
  • Add tasteful elegance to your bridal or baby shower with a chocolate fountain. These baking squares also melt into a delicious fondue.
  • Drizzle melted chocolate onto parchment paper in small shapes. Once cool, peel them off and use them to top cakes and cupcakes.
