Italian drinking chocolate is the rich, decadent and more sophisticated cousin of hot chocolate, and once you try it, you won’t ever go back to regular hot chocolate again.
1/2 cup cream
1 1/2 cups milk
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 tablespoon raw sugar
16 oz dark chocolate
1 tablespoon corn starch + 2 tablespoons milk
- Mix corn starch with 2 Tbs milk until no lumps remain and set aside.
- In a small sauce pan combine cream, milk, vanilla, and sugar and bring to a simmer over medium heat.
- Lower temperature to medium-low, add chocolate and corn starch mixture and whisk consistently (to avoid burning) until melted, fully combined and silky smooth (about 5 minutes).
- Serve warm topped with whipped cream (if desired).
