Captain’s Log, Stardate 10.31.2011
So I found several recipes and cobbled together this one:
Pour 2 cups milk into a saucepan, whisk in 1 teaspoon cornstarch. Heat on medium heat until steaming, then add 12-13 ounces bar chocolate (not baking chocolate) chopped into small pieces. Whisk to melt the chocolate, enjoy with pretzels in lieu of the wonderful pretzel croissant we had at City Bakery.
Unfortunately, while good, the hot chocolate was not thick enough. The City Bakery stuff literally globbed into the cup, it was that thick. Next time, I think I will add less milk and more cornstarch. And what the heck, maybe more chocolate too.
Any good chocolate stories? Recipes I should try?
