Real Chocolate Hot Chocolate

In Paris there is a cafe called Angelina's where they make hot chocolate from real melted dark chocolate. It is divine, and if you love chocolate and ever have the luck to go to Paris, go there. Seriously.

Anyway, this recipe is based on the delectable experience which is cocoa at Angelina's.

You will need:

2 cups whole milk (I like organic)
1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
1/4 tsp vanilla
Canned whipped cream (or make your own)

In a small to medium saucepot, heat the chips with just enough water to coat the bottom of the pan, on medium to medium-high. Whisk continuously while the chocolate melts. Add milk and vanilla and keep stirring until the milk steams. Pour into mugs and top with whipped cream.

Makes 2-3 mugs depending on size. For the size of mug in the picture it made two.

You can easily jazz this up with a tablespoon or two of your favorite fruit or mint liqueur, which you'd add instead of the vanilla, or you can use white chocolate chips, or some combination of those. Enjoy!
