Thick & Rich Hot Cocoa

Your rating: None Average: 4 (147 votes)

Rich, creamy and thick enough that you may want to scoop it with a spoon, this European-style drinking chocolate is something different from the usual hot cocoa. Serve it in a demitasse or espresso cup for an elegant treat.

I definitely can't believe its only 98 calories. However, a dash of vanilla extract, cinnamon, or grated orange peel adds some subtle flavor.

Love this South Euro-style hot chocolate. So satisfying. Just keep simmering gently until it thickens--it eventually will, just give it enough time. I always add a curl or two of fresh orange peel (without pith) while the milk warms up--the hint of orange oil is a delicious addition and totally natural. You could also add 1/2 tsp pure vanilla extract.

This was OK. I had no issues getting mine think and creamy like the picture. I constantly whisked and right before boiling I could see it was getting thick so I kept going until it got almost pudding texture. I loved the texture and how warm it was but for me it was not sweet enough. I added some Splenda packs but it was still bitter tasting. If you are not a real sweet tooth like me you will love this.

This makes a hot cocoa that's a lot like drinking hot pudding. Texture is good, but I think it could use a dash of salt or a little vanilla extract to round out the flavor.

I just finished a serving of this. I thought it was a great chocolate fix for a few calories.
I 1/2ed the recipe as I didn't have enough cocoa on hand. Found if you add more cornstarch it makes it thicker more like pudding yummy! Although that probably changes the calorie content?
