Bubbly hot, thick and rich-- any thicker and it would be a pudding!
Castillian Hot Chocolate
Scale ingredients to servings
1/2 cup cocoa powder
1 cup sugar
7 tsp cornstarch
1/2 cup water
1 qt milk
Wisk the cocoa and sugar together into a medium-sized saucepan. Dissolve the cornstarch in the water, and stir into the cocoa and sugar until it is a smooth paste.
Begin heating the mixture, stirring it with a whisk, and gradually pour in the milk. Continue stirring with the whisk as you bring the liquid to a simmer.
Allow the chocolate to simmer for about 10 minutes, stirring often, until it is thick, glossy and completely smooth.
Serve steaming hot in coffee mug. Serves six.
