Oh, friends, let me introduce you to this bliss that is European Hot Chocolate! It can hardly even be called mere hot chocolate--it is more akin to a lovely bowl of rich chocolate fondue. Only you can drink the whole cup!
It also goes perfectly with the Mini Churro Muffins I shared yesterday. Like, maybe I made a batch expressly to dunk in this chocolate paradise.
It all starts with a bar of dark chocolate. But of course we also cut the bitter dark chocolate with a generous handful of semi sweet chocolate chips. And then you pour lots of whole milk on that business for some serious goodness.
The trick to getting this to its fondue-esque stage, is corn starch. Yes, it sounds odd but it works. Promise.
And then all you have to do is dust your churro muffins in cinnamon sugar and Go To Town.
Forever and ever. Until you are left with the saddest sight in the world: an empty mug.
I'm so excited to share this European Hot Chocolate recipe on The Collaboreat today!
Finally, we're getting ready to head off for our annual Florida trip to visit family. While things will be a little quiet here until 2015, I'll still be around a bit next week and afterwards on Instagram and Pinterest.
P.S. 2015! Can you even believe it? I was supposed to have a hoverboard right about now...
