Hot Chocolate with a Water Base
(recipe, Chuck Siegel)
No milk handy? This water-based drink is a great alternative hot chocolate from Chuck Siegel of Charles Chocolates.
- 4 cups cold water
- ½ cup sugar
- 9 oz. bittersweet chocolate (70 percent cacao), chopped
- ½ cup Dutch-process cocoa powder
- In a medium saucepan, bring water and sugar to a boil, stirring to dissolve the sugar. Add the chocolate and the cocoa and mix with a whisk to dissolve. Heat until just simmering, then remove from heat.
- Use an immersion blender (or a regular blender with a towel held tightly over the lid) to froth the hot liquid for one minute. Serve in small mugs.
