A mug of this decadently rich hot chocolate will take you back to childhood snow days—but try one of its variations (cinnamon! raspberry! white chocolate!) for a decidedly grown-up experience.

Servings: Serves 6
  • 17 1/2 ounces (five 3 1/2-ounce bars) good quality milk chocolate , broken into small pieces
  • 1 3/4 cups heavy cream
  • 6 cups milk (low-fat, if desired)
  • 3 Tbsp. confectioners' sugar
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.

  • Top with cinnamon
  • Substitute white chocolate
  • Add 1 tablespoon raspberry syrup or raspberry jam to each mug before pouring in hot chocolate
