French Hot Chocolate
This French Hot Chocolate recipe is inspired by the hot chocolate which is served in tea houses all over France. I remember the first time I ordered hot chocolate in France and I was served a small cup of the richest most decadent melted chocolate. I am not lying when I tell you I have dreamed about it since!
I knew I had to develop my own version of this recipe and so I set about trying different combinations until I settled on this version. I make this by whisking milk, cream, powdered sugar and espresso powder in a saucepan. Just before it boils I remove the pan from the heat and stir in the chocolate chunks. Once the chocolate melts, I pour it into teacups and spoon a large dollop of whipped cream on top. Yum!
