Wow Tisme, this is hot chocolate is heaven. Definitely the most rich and decadent treat that I have tried on this site to date. Words can't express how wonderful this rich, dark, thick, creamy, robust treat really is. I adore the use of salt and sherry in this special drink I truly believe it takes the hot chocolate somewhere special. The whipped cream was the icing on the cake so to speak, it really brings all the flavors together. Thanks so much for sharing a recipe that I have placed in my Best of 2011 Cookbook.
