I find most hot chocolate drinks much too sweet for my taste. I never add sugar when I make this. Instead, I pass a sugar bowl so that guests can add their own. This hot chocolate is too rich to be served in mugs; instead, serve it in small cups or demitasses. Choose your favorite nibbling bittersweet or semisweet chocolate for this recipe, as it’s one that will highlight and not obscure the chocolate’s distinct flavor nuances.

The perfect hot chocolate recipe. I usually half it and drink it all myself! Ghiradelli bittersweet chocolate chips are a good emergency substitution (a chocolate emergency, anyways)
