Best Ever Hot Chocolate

I am excited to share this jewel of a recipe with you.  It is a special drink, so make it when you are feeling.. special!:)  This would not be an every night kind of drink- too expensive and not good for the body- but for a treat, I say go for it!
It combines 2 brands of chocolate..Godiva and Dove.  I know, very indulgent.

I got the recipe from a very special lady, Ilo Tefft.  She told me about the recipe almost a year ago and I have not forgotten about it, but I was too cheap to buy a bottle of Godiva Chocolate Liqueur.  I had told a close friend about the recipe a while back, and guess what? For my birthday she bought me a bottle of Godiva Milk Chocolate Liqueur! How great is that? It is a beautiful bottle full of creamy milk chocolate.  Just a teaspoon in a cup of coffee creates a delightfully warm, evening drink, but.. back to the hot chocolate.  Ilo was kind enough send me the recipe again, and last night I was in creamy, dreamy, chocolate heaven.

Here is what you do:
*Pour about 8 oz milk into a mug (I used whole milk-yea, baby!)
*Drop 3 Dove chocolates into the mug of milk.
*Heat in microwave until hot (less then 2 minutes)
*Add Godiva Chocolate liqueur to taste, 1-2 teaspoons.
*Add 1 1/2 tsp sugar (optional)
*Use fancy frother to whip it up. (or just a spoon:))
*Sit back, relax, and sip!

(I love my Aerolatte Milk Frother, it makes me happy!  This would make a great gift!)

To cut down on cost, you can also use cocoa powder.  Heat the milk in your mug, add 1 Tbls Cocoa powder and a little less than 1 Tbls sugar.  Whip it up, add the Godiva liqueur, whip again, enjoy!

    I think your question is an important one, so important that it has inspired me to do a Hot Chocolate part 2 blog post to offer different options!

    I’ve got some ideas, and will be posting about them in the next couple days.

    Thank you for your comment Peggy!

    Do you have any recommendations for a similar type hot chocolate for someone who is a teetotaler? Maybe just a piece or two of Godiva chocolate thrown in for good measure?

    Thanks for any ideas you might be able to offer!!
