The Tuesdays with Dorie recipe from Baking Chez Moi for this week was the perfect antidote to a busy weekend full of teaching and editing (yes, indeed, although I have revealed the cover and my book can be pre-ordered, I’m still working on final edits this week (feels a little surreal, to be honest).
So, when I realised I still had one more recipe to make for Tuesdays with Dorie this month, I panicked a little (when would I find time to make this) but then relaxed when it turned out to be this magnificent “Real Hot Chocolate”. Hot chocolate?Yes but not just any hot chocolate… This one is really special and reminiscent of the ones you are served across France in specialty tea rooms. But ssssh – so easy to make on your own!
Milk, water, sugar and a pinch of salt are combined with melted chocolate (I used semisweet), stirred until combined then blended with an immersion blender. Since I made 1/2 the quantity, it was too hard to use the blender so I just whisked away with my trusty balloon whisk and it did the trick.
(note that even this 1/2 quantity was enough for two serves for me – it’s so very very rich).
