Real Hot Chocolate - Tuesdays with Dorie

We're starting the year at Tuesdays with Dorie with some easy choices from Dorie Greenspan's book Baking Chez Moi, one of them a warming cup of hot chocolate that was just what was needed during the recent spate of record-breaking low temperatures here. 
The recipe wasn't much more difficult than making hot chocolate from a mix and was easily adapted to personal preferences - I used 1% milk, 54% cacao chocolate and the smallest amount of sugar I've tried a few recipes from scratch and this one really is the best: smooth and creamy and chocolate-y, particularly delicious with a slice of Beatrice Ojakangas's lovely Swedish Saffron Batter Bread from The Great Scandinavian Baking Book.

  5. Love your cup. I used skim milk as that is all I have. I found it a little too rich.
