Hot Chocolate For a Cold NJ

I get the best advice from my daughters and it is usually delivered diplomatically!  When you are taking care of four sons, your femininity occasionally needs some dusting.  So I get the fashion advice, the celeb advice, ( I know QUITE a bit about hockey "celebs"), and some food advice too...My eldest,an amazing artist and organic sorbet entrepreneur, passed along this recipe for hot chocolate =french hot chocolate!!
Thought I'd try it this morning after the troop disbursement and it is fantastic.  I used 1% milk and it still tasted amazing. ( Wait to put the sugar in until you have tasted the hot chocolate.) Felt like I was back in Paris with Baby One many years ago.


Heat 2 cups of whole milk over low heat.

Whisk in 5 ounces of bittersweet chocolate.

(I love the Scharffen Berger chocolate).

Add 2 Tablespoons of light brown sugar
if necessary.


Here's a lovely, quiet, french moment to enjoy with your hot chocolate courtesy of Pierre Bonnard............
