Amazing From-Scratch Hot Chocolate
What's your Take?

This is one of those the-better-the-chocolate-you-use-the-better-the-result situations. We use middle-of-the-road Ghiradelli chips from the supermarket, and still this is decadent. I also assume that some folks may want to increase or decrease the amount of chocolate, which is fine.

What you'll need

  • Marshmallows
  • 4 cups whole milk (or 3 cups low-fat milk mixed with 1 cup half and half)
  • 1 slightly heaping 1/2 cup semisweet chocolate chips
  • The tiniest pinch of kosher salt (or half the tiniest pinch of table salt)
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Yield: Serves 4

How to make it

  1. In a medium-sized pot over medium-low heat, mix the milk with the chocolate chips, whisking occasionally, until the chips are melted and merged with the steaming-hot milk.

  2. Whisk in the salt and vanilla and serve with marshmallows for topping.
