A recipe courtesy Aida Mollenkamp on the new cooking channel. I have tweaked the ingredients just a little. :) Enjoy!

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 6 ounces milk chocolate, finely chopped
  • 34 cup whole milk
  • 14 cup heavy cream (or half and half)
  • 14 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 2 -3 tablespoons raspberry flavored syrup
  • crystallized ginger, for garnish (optional)


  1. Combine everything except the syrup and ginger in a small saucepan and place over medium-low heat. Whisk occasionally until chocolate is melted, about 2 minutes.
  2. Continue to cook, whisking frequently until smooth and slightly thickened, about 5 minutes. Remove from heat, stir in raspberry syrup, top with a piece of ginger, if using, and serve immediately.

Really good mix of flavours. Didn't have crystallized ginger, but I don't think it made a difference. It was rich and creamy, and so good!

NIce blend of flavors between the chocolate and raspberry syrup. I did use 1% milk and half and half to reduce some of the fat content and it still was a nice hot cocoa. I skipped on the garnishment this go round. It was a nice change of pace to just plain hot cocoa. Thanks for sharing your recipe! Made for the Let's Party event 2010.
