I also used semisweet chocolate. This was excellent. Hot chocolate the old-fashioned way. Rich, lovely chocolate flavor and heart-warming. Thanks for a blast from the past.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 3 cups whole milk
  • 3 ounces bittersweet chocolate or 3 ounces semisweet chocolate, chopped into small pieces


  1. For frothy hot chocolate: Bring the milk just to a boil.
  2. Put the chocolate in a blender and pour in the hot milk.
  3. Let sit for 10 to 15 seconds so the chocolate begins to melt and then cover securely, place a folded towel over the lid, and blend until completely mixed and frothy, about 30 seconds.
  4. For unfrothy hot chocolate: Heat the milk in a saucepan until it just begins to boil.
  5. Remove the pan from the heat, add the chocolate, and stir or whisk until well blended.
