Home made hot chocolate is comfort food at its best, especially in the winter time. Although, I have been known to serve this up around a campfire on the 4th of July and it tasted just fine. This is an old Gourmet recipe.
- In a large heavy saucepan combine the cocoa powder, sugar, vanilla, water and a dash of salt.
- Heat mixture over low heat, whisking, until the cocoa powder is dissolved and the mixture is a smooth paste.
- Gradually add the milk and half&half and simmer whisking for 2 minutes.
- Stir in Baileys.
- Divide hot chocolate into warmed mugs and top with whipped cream and chocolate shavings.
