Creamy Italian Hot Chocolate Recipe | How Tasty Channel

Thick and creamy italian way hot chocolate. You can taste at home an hot chocolate (“cioccolata calda”) like in Italy. In few minutes you can prepare an heartwarming winter delight.
I suggest to use an high quality cocoa powder and dark chocolate. If you want to make it in a low-fat version, you can avoid the dark chocolate and use a low fat milk instead.

Makes 2 medium-small size cups

¾ oz (20 g) Dark Chocolate (at least 70% cocoa)
3 tablespoons (30 g) Unsweetened Cocoa Powder
2 tablespoons (15 g) Cornstarch
3 tablespoons (35 g) granulated White Sugar
1 cup + 1 tablespoon (250 ml) Whole Milk
½ pinch of salt

For garnish:
Dark Chocolate, grated
Whipped Cream (I use unsweetened whipped cream)


Prepare your serving cups:

Turn upside down your cups and dip them in Nutella untile they are evenly edged, then dip them in grated dark chocolate.

Prepare the hot chocolate:

Finely chop the dark chocolate.
In a small saucepan sift the cocoa powder and the cornstarch. Add the sugar, the salt and combine.
Add about 3-4 tablespoons of milk and stir well to combine. Add gradually the rest of the milk.
Cook over low-medium heat often whisking it: when it starts to slightly thicken add the chopped chocolate, combine and bring it to a boil.
Serve immediately into your serving cups and garnish with whipped cream; I use unsweetened whipped cream to exalt the chocolate flavor.

Moggridge says:

Yum, I just made this and it was as delicious as I expected it to be! Thank you.

I only used half the cornstarch stated and it was still very thick. I would say as others have that it turns out to be more of a dessert and you could not drink it. So, maybe I shall add more milk/less starch next time. I also only used 1 tablespoon of sugar and that was sweet enough for me.

Simple and easy to make, yet very lovely!
