(recipe, Chuck Siegel)
This simple and rich milk-based hot chocolate is a cold-weather classic from Chuck Siegel of Charles Chocolates.
Culinate editor's note: Since this recipe obviously makes chocolate for a crowd, quarter everything to make enough just for 2 people: 2 cups milk, 1/4 cup water, 4 1/2 oz. chocolate, and 1/4 cup sugar. The resulting beverage will still be intensely chocolatey, so you may want to up the milk. Other add-ins include vanilla extract and (for the adults) a splash of Grand Marnier or brandy.
