This recipe makes 4 small cups, but as it is so rich and heavenly, a small cup is just right.
2 cups milk
5 ounces dark chocolate (ideally at least 70 % cocoa), finely chopped
a few grains of salt
Heat the milk in a saucepan. As the milk warms, whisk in the chocolate and salt, stirring until melted and steaming hot. The hot chocolate actually improves if made ahead and allowed to sit for a few hours. Simply reheat slowly before serving.
