- Heat the chocolate, milk and half and half cream over medium heat in a heavy saucepan, stirring until the chocolate has melted.
- Whisk until the mixture is hot and frothy.

Holy hot chocolate, Batman! I made a large batch of this for a Christmas party and kept it warm in my crockpot. This is by far the best hot chocolate I've ever had! I used half milk and half cream as a substitute for the 1/2 and 1/2 (since it is, by its very nature, half cream and half milk - and I didn't want to spend the money on a carton of 1/2 and 1/2, haha), and used a combination of Hershey's Special Dark and a dark Lindt bar that I saw at the store. I can't wait to try this using white chocolate! Thanks for such a delicious recipe. :)
