Rich Italian Hot Chocolate


  •  1 cup heavy whipping cream
  •  4½ ounces/ 128 grams dark chocolate, callets or finely chopped from a bar
  •  1 cup whole milk, divided
  •  4 tablespoons (50g) granulated sugar
  •  1½ teaspoons cornstarch (reduce to 3/4 teaspoon if a thinner consistency is preferred)
  •  Whipped cream, optional for garnish
  •  Chocolate shavings, optional for garnish


  1. In a medium, heavy bottomed saucepan over medium-high heat, whisk together ¾ 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 or liquid measuring cup with a spout, whisk together the remaining ¼ 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 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 mugs. While this recipe fills 2 average-sized mugs, keep in mind that it's super rich, so you might want to consider serving 4 half cupfuls instead. 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.
