There’s hot cocoa mix, and there’s drinking chocolate, and we fall firmly in the camp that if you’re looking for a rich, creamy, and decadent sip, drinking chocolate is the way to go. Why? Because drinking chocolate is made from actual chocolate (as opposed to cocoa powder). This recipe opts for homemade, using dark or bittersweet chocolate, and even throws in a little espresso. Alter as needed—skip the espresso, swap in nut milk, etc.—and enjoy the dreamiest of drinks.
