Recipe: Dark Chocolate Hot Cocoa

Dark Chocolate Hot Cocoa Reviews

  • Where has this recipe been all my life? I would give this 10 stars if I could. The taste is rich and creamy and tastes like all the good things in life in a mug. I used coconut cream and heavy coconut cream instead of dairy versions. I used whipped coconut cream too. Top this with some cayenne pepper This will make you hate those cold dreary days a bit less Thank you Aurora for this heavenly cup of chocolate goodness

  • Perfect. Added a tablespoon of flour for that Haitian touch.

  • Very awesome Made one exactly as written (but using 1%-thats what we drink) it was super tasty and rich. The second mug I again used 1% with a teaspoon of honey instead of brown sugar. They were both great.

  • Great cocoa Tasted amazing with the touch of cinnamon

  • It was too thick to drink. I plan to try it again with 1oz of dark chocolate.

  • Rich rich rich. I melted my chocolate in a double boiler. Actually it was a glass bowl over a pan of boiling water. I warmed my milk in a pan with sugar & cinnamon on other burner. Then added it to melted chocolate gradually whisking it in. I never added cream...I had it out but was so impressed with its thickness and richness I never added any cream, I used fat boy milk alias whole milk That probably made the difference Numnum Nummy

  • Saved as a favorite. Perfect as is. Step it up as you wish.
