Recipe: Spiced Dark Hot Chocolate
- 2 1/2 oz. unsweetened chocolate
- 4 oz. chocolate (semi-sweet)
- 1 1/4 cup Dark Brown Sugar
- 1 1/4 cup + 2T Sugar
- 750 ml Milk
- 575 ml Heavy Cream
- 1 1/4 tsp Vanilla extract
- 1/2 oz. Dried Ancho Chili
- 3 Cinnamon Sticks
- Pinch of Salt
In a saucepan bring to a boil everything except the chocolate. Let it sit and steep for 15 minutes.
Bring it up to a simmer once more and off the heat place the chocolate into the pot. Let it sit for 5 minutes to allow it to melt.
Stir it all together well. Strain it all through a fine sieve and ready to serve.
If you want to make it a day ahead you can. Cool it down completely and refrigerate. When ready to serve, heat it up gently in a saucepan on low heat or else it may burn. Or if you want you can even reheat it in the microwave.
