Chocolat Chaud

We usually stop for chocolat chaud at Angelina when we're in Paris during the cold weather. Once we found this recipe at home we immediately tried it; now it's a staple! Yield: Four 6-ounce cups.


  • 2 1/4 cups whole milk (or 2 1/2 cups 1% milk and no water)
  • 1/4 cup bottled still water
  • 1/4 cup (generous) superfine granulated sugar


  • 1 100-gram bar (3 1/2 ounces) dark bittersweet chocolate—Scharffen Berger, Valrhona, or Lindt (we use a Lindt 70% bar)—finely sliced with a serrated bread knife
  • 1/4 cup cocoa powder, loosely packed, preferably Valhrona


  1. In a 2-quart saucepan, stir together the milk, water and sugar.
  2. Bring to a boil over medium heat.
  3. Add the chopped chocolate and the cocoa and bring to a boil again, whisking until the chocolate and cocoa are dissolved and the mixture has thickened. Reduce the heat to very low.
  4. Blend for 5 minutes with an immersion blender or whirl the hot chocolate in a standard blender for half a minute, until thick and foamy.
  5. Optional: serve with a dollop of whipped cream.


Note: The Mayans and the Aztecs considered the froth the best part. Today, five minutes with an immersion blender accomplishes what a half hour of beating did long ago.
