Chocolate Bar Hot Chocolate

The only good thing about winter is being able to drink hot chocolate.

As a lover of this delicious warm drink, I am pretty particular about how it’s made. It needs to be creamy, not overly chocolate-y (be made with Belgian chocolate), topped off with fresh whipped cream and served in a beautiful copper mug. #diva

Someone recently brought us a can of Bouchard Belgian Chocolate Coins and that is what I used to make this with. Otherwise, I probably would have used Cadbury (only from the UK though).

This post is making me sound like a snob. I swear I’m not…lol. But the truth is, I’m just not a fan of American chocolate. ;PChocolate Bar Hot ChocolateChocolate Bar Hot ChocolateChocolate Bar Hot Chocolate

Yields 2 cups

Ingredients For hot chocolate
-1 3/4 cups whole organic milk
-1.5 oz of chocolate (about 1 bar of chocolate)

Ingredients for Whip Cream
-1/4 cup whipping cream
-1 tbs powder sugar (or to your taste)



1. Put milk in a sauce pan and heat it up over medium heat.
2. Meanwhile, chop chocolate and prepare whipp cream.
3. Once the milk looks like it’s going to start boiling (when you start seeing small bubbles on the side), whisk in the chocolate in small increments.
4. Once it’s all incorporated, pour into cups and dollop with whip cream.

For whip cream:

1. Beat whipping cream until it starts getting thick. Add powder sugar and continue to whip until peaks form.


-For the best whip cream of all time, add mascarpone cream to your whipping cream mixture, you won’t regret it! Check out how to make it here.

P.S. I know it looks like I just shaved chocolate over a huge cup of milk but that is just a layer of melted fresh whipped cream. *drool*

  1. Your snobbiness is well-founded. Most American chocolate is just not up to par. Good chocolate makes good hot chocolate <3

      I was never a fan of chocolate until I went to Belgium a few years ago and sampled chocolates everywhere I went!

    I have always wanted to get some copper mugs. Do they keep the drink warm for a longer period of time?

  3. aaah this hot chocolate looks to die for! I’m loving these copper mugs, I wanna get my hands on those as well. haha.
