Thick, rich drinking chocolate makes a perfect alternative to coffee for those who prefer a more indulgent dunk for their biscotti and doughnuts.
1/4 c. sugar
1/4 c. cocoa
2 c. 2% milk
1 c. half & half
1/4 - 1/2 c. chopped dark chocolate
In a medium saucepan, whisk together the sugar and cocoa to get rid of any lumps. Set over medium-high heat and whisk in the milk and cream; bring to a simmer, whisking well. Remove from the heat and add the chocolate and salt; let stand for a minute, then whisk until smooth. Serve warm.
