French Hot Chocolate Recipe

Winter is already well-settled, so it’s time to start cocooning all weekend long!
One of my great pleasures, when I’m in Paris and the temperature is dropping, is sipping a cup of rich hot chocolate – a Chocolat Chaud – in a cozy café. I’m a voracious chocolate lover and I can’t ever get enough of this thick, gloriously rich and delicious concoction. So when I deeply feel the desire for chocolate, I’d make this quick and easy recipe and feel really good instantly.
Follow these really easy steps to make a dark hot chocolate that tastes just like the kind served in Paris cafés! Add a cozy place in your home and a good book and you’re all set for a relaxing winter afternoon.
