    Annacia's Note:

    Fabulous Italian hot chocolate! A life of piety and chastity has to call for something sensual occasionally. Yes, you can enjoy the seductive chocolate flavor and thick creaminess of this Italian hot chocolate without fearing the loss of other worldly pleasures, but this confection is sure to elicit a moan from all who partake. Drinking any of the great Italian-style hot chocolates is almost a religious experience. Over and over again, people who taste this drink for the first time say, "Oh, my God." Is that enough encouragement to give this one a try? Don't overlook the importance of the orange zest or the arrowroot. The oil from the zest gives the chocolate a fresh kick, and the arrowroot thickens the mixture. Servings: Serves 2 in cappuccino cups or 4 in espresso cups.

      This is a wonderful hot chocolate, Annacia. I enjoyed it very much, rich, thick, smooth, creamy and very decadent. I especially loved the addition of the orange zest with the bittersweet chocolate. So good and really quick and easy to make. I highly recommend this to anyone who is looking for some pure comfort.

      This was fantastic! I used to make this with cocoa powder, but it's so much better with chocolate. Thanks for posting!! Made for Comfort Cafe Snow Queen 2010.

      Wow Jelly; I'd been looking for this recipe ever since my DGSs came to visit us in Italy. They ordered hot chocolate every where over there and fell in love with it. Could not find anything even close until this one popped up. DGS #1 actually found it and was so proud of himself. It's very thick decadeant, and rich - I recommend serving in small cups (which is probably why the recipe made such a small amount) as it's VERY rich. I did add a tsp of vanilla to help cut down some of the bitterness of the chips and topped with whip cream. My 2 boys where in chocolate heaven. It's so thick and creamy you can actually eat it with a spoon which is exactly like the ones they had in Italy. Thanks for posting you made the boys day.
