Heavenly Hot Chocolate Mix–with Seven Variations

Heavenly Hot Chocolate

I adore Hot Chocolate, as distinct from Hot Cocoa or Drinking Chocolate. Definitions abound, but which is best?

A Gift of Drinking Chocolate

One Hot Mama Hot Chocolate

This is not mildly-flavored American-style hot cocoa, which is typically made with cocoa powder, or sometimes with chocolate syrup. Rather, it is European-style drinking or hot chocolate, which is made with whole milk (and sometimes part cream) and melted high-quality bar chocolate. Once you have had hot chocolate made in this way, you won’t settle for anything less.
