Italian Hot Chocolate Recipe – Cioccolata in tazza
I have to admit it, one of the worst I had coming to Canada was when I found out people make hot chocolate with water and not with milk!
To be honest I do like Tim Hortons hot chocolate, but the real hot chocolate for me it’s something very different.
I remember waiting for my Mum to make me a cioccolata in tazza as badly as waiting for Christmas, and always seriously burning my tongue because I wasn’t able to wait to let it cold down.
Today I share with you this great and very easy recipe.
100 grams of dark chocolate,
1 tb potato starch or corn starch,
1 1/2 cups whole milk
sugar as needed
Melt chocolate in the milk over very low heat.
Remove from heat and let mixture rest for 10 minutes. Add the potato starch (or corn starch) and mix. Reheat until hot and whip until foamy.
Pour into individual cups and let it cold down.
You can serve the cioccolata with whipped cream, or cookies for dipping.
The consistency should be perfect to be eaten with a spoon, but you can reduce the potato starch quantity if you like it a little more liquid. Also, you can add sugar if the dark chocolate it’s too bitter for you.
Change it up with spices: you can add hot pepper powder, cinnamon, mint or any other flavor to customize this recipe for you and your family.
