You have not had “Hot Chocolate” until you have had this Italian Drinking Chocolate Recipe. Alexanders Chocolates in Dayton, WA makes the most exceptions drinking chocolate and I was so excited when I saw they shared the recipe on facebook. We seriously will drive 2 hours just for a small glass of this stuff… It is that good! You might be thinking that it sounds like hot chocolate? Well, you have to taste it to see the difference. Drinking Chocolate is a thick, rich, dense yet smooth chocolate. So rich that a small 2 ounce shot is all you need. We have made this with 70% Cocoa Dark Chocolate (chopped into small pieces) and it is fantastic. The kids however, though it was too rich, so we have also made it with Milk Chocolate Hersheys Bars and the kids devoured it!

- 2 Cups Whole Milk
- 2 Cups Heavy Whipping Cream
- 9 oz. Shaved Chocolate
- Whipped Cream for Top Plus Extra Shaved Chocolate to Garnish
- Measure 2 cups whole milk and 2 cups heavy whipping cream into a large pan
- Heat at medium up to about 150 degrees.
- Place contents of entire 9 ounce can of shaved chocolate into the warmed milk-cream mixture.
- Stir until chocolate particles appear dissolved.
- If you have an immersion blender, this will minimize your time at the stove.
- Don’t walk away and leave the chocolate mixture until entirely done as the chocolate will accumulate on the bottom of the pan and burn.
- This makes 16 two-ounce European style servings. Add some whipped cream on top in your cup. Sit back and enjoy the drinking chocolate like most people have never experienced! Salute!” -Alexanders Chocolates
