Black Bottom Hot Chocolate

Black Bottom Hot Chocolate 10

I almost don’t want to share this recipe with you today. Not because it isn’t very good. But because it is too good. So good, that you will make it repeatedly and gain 100 pounds and blame me. This is the richest, chocolatiest hot chocolate I have ever had. Dare I say it is even better than the hot chocolate I had in Rome? Maybe not better certainly just as good. First, you add the fudge layer to the cup and refrigerate it. Then you add the hot chocolate and whipped cream. When you stir it together it gets extra thick and chocolatey! So yummy!

My mom bought be this book of different hot chocolate recipes. I mostly selected this black bottom hot chocolate because the recipe comes from a restaurant in Chicago called Hot Chocolate. I have been wanted to go to Hot Chocolate for years. So far I have been unable to convince my husband that we NEED to go to a restaurant called Hot Chocolate. Maybe it is a better place to go with a bunch of girlfriends. Anyway, since I have not been to Hot Chocolate, this is the next best thing. I knew this would be good. Heavy cream, sugar, brown sugar, 3 kinds of chocolate. Obviously, it would be good. But I wasn’t ready for how good it would be! It was so thick and chocolatey! I definitely suggest serving this in small glasses or mugs though. A large coffe mug would just be too much. Kelly and I really enjoyed this recipe. This will be my go-to recipe when I really want to treat myself to a fantastic homemade hot chocolate.
