I posted a picture on Instagram a few days ago, and one of my followers asked for the recipe. Now this isn't any 'secret' recipe, but I've never posted any recipes since I'm the one always looking to others for recipes. After much thought, I decided - why not? This is really great to enjoy after being outside in the snow....love coming inside to a warm cup of hot chocolate!
Now, a warning first: this is a very rich hot chocolate--some people don't like that its so sweet--I'm Cuban, so I love it!! I love it so much that I can't drink the hot chocolates sold at Dunkin Doughnuts or any other place like that....they are too watery and not sweet at all - in my opinion!! I'll let you be the judge! So here is Tati's Hot Chocolate(I've called her tati since I was a baby, never grandma, LOL)
Tati's Hot Chocolate
1 can evaporated milk
1 can condensed milk
chocolate (powder, syrup, or bar you grate yourself-I use Nestle Quick chocolate powder)
pinch of salt
Pour 1 can of evaporated milk into a saucepan. Use that same can and fill with water then add to saucepan. Heat over medium heat. Add pinch of salt and chocolate(add to your taste). When milk begins to boil, remove from heat and add the can of condensed milk. Stir well.
That's it!! Very quick, very sweet!!!
I've recently added marshmallows to the top, OMG....it is amazing!!
Just make sure to keep an eye on it while you are heating it, I've turned my back on it for just a second and it has boiled over...what a mess!!! Now I stand there and watch it like a hawk!!
Hope you enjoy my grandmother's(Tati) hot chocolate :)
