Hot Chocolate

I seriously considered calling this “Evil Hot Chocolate” or “Seriously Serious Hot Chocolate”.  But then I figured most of you would be hooked at “chocolate”. : )
This is a very rich hot cocoa, and you can definetely add more milk if you want to tame it a bit.
I would make it as per the recipe, and you can always add more in the end if you’re not sure how rich you want it.  You can also use darker chocolate to make it deeper in flavor, or semi-sweet or milk for a more mellow flavor.
1 cup heavy cream
3 cups milk (any kind is fine, I use fat free)
8 oz chocolate, chopped (or chips) Dark, bittersweet, semi-sweet, milk, or any combination
(I usually do half each dark and milk or all dark)
1 tsp vanilla
If using bar chocolate, just leave in wrapper and break in pieces.
Heat milk and cream in a pot over medium high heat until warmed.
Add chocolate and whisk until melted and incorporated well.
Stir in vanilla and serve with whipped cream.
This works well to make ahead and reheat as well.
