  • ¾ cup chopped dark chocolate
  • 1 cup heavy whipping cream
  • 3 tablespoon cocoa powder
  • ½ cup whole milk


  • Melt chopped chocolate over low heat till it is all melted and shiny.
  • Add the heavy cream, cocoa powder and milk. Whisk to mix well.
  • Keep whisking over medium heat, till it all comes together and it is hot.
  • Serve right away with more chopped chocolate sprinkled on top.


  • Use heavy cream to get that creamy and thick texture, which is very important for this hot chocolate. 
  • This hot chocolate recipe does not use any sugar or other sweetener. It derives its sweetness from the chocolate and the cream. Which is why it is even more important to use a great quality chocolate.
