Impress Your Guests with Homemade Dark Hot Chocolate

While you’re waiting for winter to wind down both you and your restaurant guests can enjoy a cup of fresh brewed homemade dark hot chocolate. This is a specialty treat that is beloved by many and will be especially appreciated by those that don’t drink coffee. While regular hot chocolate is fantastic, hot dark chocolate is simply divine.

Basic Recipe

Make a delicious cup of dark hot chocolate by heating up 1 cup of milk over low heat or in the microwave and then add 1 tablespoon of dark chocolate powder. Continue to stir over low heat until the chocolate is mixed in and there you go! This is a basic recipe, however there are many variations that you can try to make the hot chocolate your own.

Dark Hot Chocolate Recipe Variations

Use whipped cream as a garnish along with some chocolate shavings and a small sprinkle of salt. The salt seems to accentuate the chocolate flavour while at the same time reducing the amount of sweetness.

Spice up the hot chocolate with a pinch of cayenne pepper and cinnamon to add some depth to the hot chocolate along with a spicy zest. This is a variation of Mexican hot chocolate that brings out the underlying flavour of the deep chocolate. Be sure to add marshmallows on top to provide a decadent vanilla foam. This cup of chocolate is sure to warm you up on even the coldest days.

You can also make a mixture of 1/2 dark hot chocolate and 1/2 coffee for a drink that will warm your heart. It’s a great way to offer the best of both worlds when customers don’t know whether they should order a hot chocolate or a regular cup of coffee.
