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.

Yummy! The orange zest does add a wonderful flavor to the chocolate. We used cornstarch in lieu of the arrowroot, but after 2 minutes it would still not thicken up, but it did not hinder the flavor at all. We too used a mix of dark and milk chocolates and the chocolate flavor was great. This is a great hot chocolate recipe. Thanks for sharing. ~Buddha

What an absolute divine chocolate drink. I used a mix of dark ( 70%) and semi sweet chocolate and forgot to add the sugar LOL But this was OK and so decadant. Now I need to buy some small demi cups just for this. Made for Comfort Cafe tag Jan 2009
