Hot Chocolate

Who wouldn't love a warm and creamy hot chocolate, a chocolateeee romantic drink.




As we are about to celebrate valentine's day in a week, I thought this would be a timely post. This hot chocolate is not only great for valentine's day but it is awesome for any occasion. This can be made very easily with the ingredients in out own pantry.

Talking about the chocolate, the key ingredient in this drink, I love to use milk chocolate personally as i am not a big fan for semi sweet chocolate.
Traditionally semi sweet chocolate is used in hot chocolate.

I have used some marshmallows for garnish. Some time i also top it with fresh Whipped cream. In this recipe I have cut some heart shape out of the marshmallows using a mini heart cookie cutter(valentine's day special).I like to use whole milk for such special drinks, but as i am watching into calories nowadays I have used 2% fat milk which also tasted equally good as whole milk.

Though there are many instant hot chocolate mix available, this simple home made preparations makes a huge difference in taste and texture. YUM!

Ingredients :



Milk - 1 cup
Milk Chocolate - 2 to 3 tablespoon(Chopped or Morsels)
Vanilla - 1 teaspoon

Marshmallows for garnish


Procedure :


Combine milk and chocolate in a saucepan and bring it to a boil, keep whisking until the chocolate is melted. Remove from heat. Using a milk frothier whip the hot chocolate. It will form some beautiful foam on the top. Pour the hot chocolate into cups with the foam and garnish with marshmallows.
