First, note the best mug ever known to man (found at IKEA of all places). And secondly, I am hot chocolate obsessed recently, awesome, and not awesome at the same time. I hope you all have seen the Polar Express, and love the hot chocolate scene as much as I do. The iconic cozy feel good drink is simple to make and an instant mood lifter. The trick to a cup good enough to board the Polar Express is a dash of salt and vanilla, other then that it’s just milk and chocolate. Simple.
Fo a personal cup:
1/4 cup dark chocolate, chopped
3/4 cup whole milk
2 tablespoons cream + extra to whip
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
a dash sea salt
Melt everything together in a small sauce pan. Heat until the chocolate is melted and it’s just starting to simmer. Whip a couple of tablespoons of cream. Pour the hot chocolate into your mug, top with the unsweetned whipped cream.
