Quick, Rich Hot Chocolate

Scott Phillips

Yield: Yields about 8-1/2 cups.

Servings: 8

We like to whip up a batch of ganache and keep it in the fridge to make hot chocolate on the fly. But be warned: This is not your Swiss Miss hot cocoa; this version is much richer, not nearly as sweet, and quite a bit thicker. To make 1 cup at a time, heat 1 cup milk and add 1/3 cup ganache and just a touch of salt.
