In a heavy-bottomed saucepan combine chocolate and 1 cup cream and cook over medium-low heat, stirring occasionally. When chocolate is completely melted, whisk in milk. Increase heat until chocolate milk is very hot, but not boiling.
With an electric mixer, whip remaining cream with sugar until stiff peaks form. Pour hot chocolate into mugs and top with a dollop of whipped cream. Variations:
