This is very rich and thick, like a loose pudding. From Bittman's, "The Best Recipes in the World."

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 12 lb good-quality semisweet chocolate (or bittersweet)
  • 4 cups milk
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon


  1. If your chocolate is in a bar form, chop or grate. Solid bars do not melt well.
  2. Put chocolate, milk and sugar in a heavy saucepan over low heat. Whisk slowly until the chocolate melts and sugar dissolves.
  3. When it is smooth and steamy, put into mugs and top with a little cinnamon.

Muy bueno! I enjoyed this drink and found it nice and creamy. I topped with a little whipped cream. Thanks!

Yummy!!! I used dark chocolate for this and it's very rich and delicious. Like Sue L said, it's like drinking from Willy Wonka's river! :) Made this for my teammate for ZWT5. Thanks Debbie R.!
