Hot Chocolate

So, my husband drinks Hot Chocolate all year round. I personally LOVE it on a cold Saturday night with a good movie.

Since it is his favorite hot beverage, I am always trying to find ways to make it differently to keep him guessing.

For a few years now I have been making a signature hot chocolate drink. This year I thought that I would have you all decide which delicious recipe we should use throughout the rest of the year...

Ginger Spiced Hot Chocolate or Raspberry Hot Chocolate

Here are the recipes for them both. I am so excited to see which one you choose.

Ginger Spiced Hot Chocolate

  • 1 c soy milk
  • fresh ginger, sliced into 2 rounds
  • 2 teaspoons unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 2 teaspoons sugar
  • 2 teaspoons water
  • dark chocolate shavings (optional)
In a small saucepan heat the milk and ginger over a medium-low heat until scalding, about 4 minutes. While the milk is warming, put cocoa powder and sugar into a mug. Add the water to the mug and stir until the mixture has the consistency of a paste. Remove the ginger from the warmed milk. Add the chocolate mixture to the milk and whisk until slightly frothy. Pour the hot chocolate into the mug and top with chocolate shavings.

Raspberry Hot Chocolate
  • 1 bar of milk chocolate, finely chopped
  • 1c cup soy milk
  • 1c heavy cream
  • 1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 3 tablespoons raspberry liqueur (recommended Chambord) OR raspberry syrup OR pureed raspberries (strained)
Combine everything except the raspberries 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 raspberry choice , top with a piece of crystallized ginger(optional) and serve immediately.
