Hello! I hope you are having a good weekend. Are you decorating for Christmas? Do you have your tree up?
Is it warm? Do you feel a chill in the air? Or is it downright cold? Today it is a little chilly here and of course I am experimenting with some hot chocolate recipes. I made some raspberry hot chocolate and thought you might want to try it!
Raspberry Hot Chocolate
Adapted from Food Network
- 6 ounces dark chocolate, finely chopped or 6 oz 60% Ghiradelli bittersweet chips
- 3/4 cup whole milk
- 1/4 cup heavy cream
- 1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder, I use Droste
- 3 tablespoons raspberry liqueur (recommended Chambord)
- Snowmen, candy cane marshmallows for garnish, optional
Combine everything except the liqueur in a small saucepan and place over medium-low heat. Whisk occasionally until chocolate is melted, about 2 minutes.
Continue to cook, whisking frequently until smooth and slightly thickened, about 5 minutes. Remove from heat, stir in liqueur, top with marshmallows and serve immediately.
This hot chocolate is delicious, it is creamy, sweet, chocolaty and there is a hint of raspberry, it is like eating a candy bar. I know that I do say that all of the time but lets face it, I would not write about something that I do not like!
I hope you try it, and if you have a favorite chocolate recipe do let me know and I will come and check it out!
