    Annacia's Note:

    I "lifted" this recipe for Le Chocolat Chaud a l'Ancienne from an old chocolate blog and it's intro reads: For a short period, Starbucks offered a premium hot chocolate beverage called Chantico. It was the best hot chocolate drink that could be bought: it was an intense rich chocolate beverage, coming in a tiny cup and enough to fill you up. Sadly, not enough people bought it and it was discontinued. But I’ve found a good recipe on this site and adapted it a little bit for my tastes, and let me tell you, the result is amazing. If you decide to make this on a cold wintry December night, just don’t try to drink too much — it’s very rich!

    Yield:

    small s ...

    Units: US | Metric

    OPTIONS

    • 1 -2 teaspoon of a sweet liqueur, adding it with the vanilla (such as dark rum or Grand Marnier) (optional)
    • 2 tablespoons ginger syrup (optional)
    • unsweetened whipped cream (optional) or lightly sweetened whipped cream, as a garnish (optional)

    Directions:

    1. 1
      IF USING CHOCOLATE:.

    3. 3
      IF USING COCOA:.
    4. 4
      Mix solid ingredients, butter, and a little warmed milk to make a smooth paste; add remaining milk.
    5. 5
      In a one-quart, heavy-bottomed, non-aluminum saucepan, heat milk over medium low heat, stirring often with small whisk, until it is steaming hot. Carefully add chocolate mixture.

      wonderfully rich! I used less butter and unsweetened cocoa powder (with a bit more sugar). Thanks!

      Soooooooo decadent! The best hot chocolate I've ever had ~ like drinking warm pudding, but thinner! I used half & half instead of whole milk, and omitted the butter. I also omitted the sugar and topped mine with a blob of marshmallow cream. Would be great with a splash of Cointreau. Tagged for Fall Rookie Tag, due 09/22.

      This was so goo! I used the cinnamon and the semi sweet chocolate for this, and topped it with whipped cream and some finely grated semi sweet chocolate. I shared with my parents and had to make more!
