I love the movie "Chocolat" and in it they serve a very rich looking hot chocolate. I came across this when I was in a rush and misread the measurements for another recipe. It's wonderful! Very rich.


  1. Melt together chocolate and cream in double boiler.
  2. Warm through until desired temp, I usually don't like it really hot.
  3. Pour into 4 mugs.
  4. Top with whipped cream and a sprinkle of cinnamon.

Rich and good! Try adding 2 tablespoons of rum! Good as it is, though...

I've been wondering for ages how to make the wonderful rich drink from Chocolat, and this gave me the inspiration I needed! I made it with a hint of chili and no whipped cream, as in the movie, and it's wonderful. The only reason I'm not giving this 5 stars is that I thought it needed a bit more instruction. The first time I tried it, I put the chocolate and cream together, and it wouldn't blend. The second time, I tried melting the chocolate with a little butter, and then adding and mixing the cream (mixed with sugar and cinnamon and chili to taste) in small increments. This worked much better, and I got the rich, creamy smooth drink I was looking for. Thanks for providing this recipe!
