Rich N’ Thick Hot Chocolate

What’s better then cuddling up to your fireplace on a cold winter’s night?  A cup of homemade hot chocolate.  My favorite time to grab a cup is after a few hours shoveling or playing outside in the snow.  I found this recipe on Pinterest, and you know how much I love chocolate, so I thought I’d give it a try.  This recipe makes a thick, creamy, and chocolatey drink, so if you really love chocolate hop on board and let’s make some hot chocolate – if you don’t, then add some more milk…

Rich ‘N’ Thick Hot Chocolate

  • 2 teaspoons cornstarch
  • 4 cups milk
  • 2 dark chocolate bars, chopped
  • 1/3 cup honey
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • Pinch of salt
  • Whipped cream


  1. Whisk cornstarch and 1/2 cup milk until smooth.  Cornstarch can be very chunky, so be sure to whisk it really well!
  2. Cook remaining milk (3 1/2 cups) in a large pot over medium heat (about 4 minutes; avoid boiling)
  3. Whisk in chocolate, honey, vanilla extract, and salt until blended and smooth. Whisk in cornstarch mixture.
  4. Bring milk mixture to a light boil, whisking frequently (about 4-6 minutes).
  5. Remove from the heat and let it cool slightly. (Mixture will thicken as it cools, so don’t be alarmed if it’s looking a little watery.
  6. Serve immediately with whipped cream or marshmallows – mandatory ingredients.

Top off with whipped cream…
