    Sharon123's Note:

    One of the first recipes David Lebovitz put up on his site was a hot chocolate recipe from Wittamer, one of the best chocolate shops in Brussels, where he actually worked for a time. The head chocolatier, Michael Lewis gave him this recipe, which they serve in their chic tea salon overlooking the place Sablon. Try to find the best chocolate you can(30-40%). Adapted from The Great Book of Chocolate.

      Perfect treat on a wintry Australian morning. This is absolutely divine. I used top quality chocolate (70 per cent), including some of the famous Neuhaus brand that I bought in Belgium. Wish I'd remembered to pop in a marshmallow. Thanks so much for posting.

      This was the most chocolately and creamy smooth hot chocolate beverage I have ever made. I used Belgian baking chocolate, and I thought it made quite a positive difference. It was so delicious and quite a treat. And it whipped up quite fast, so I didn't have to wait long for my chocolate "fix". Made for the Chocolate Challenge part of Zaar World Tour #6.
