hot chocolate re-creation

We have been craving the amazing Prague hot chocolate. Topher got me a great hot chocolate cookbook for Christmas. The following recipe was the one:


Chocolate a la Taza

1/2 c whole milk

1/4 c heavy cream

4 oz semi-sweet chocolate, chopped

1/2 tsp cornstarch

1/2 tsp vanilla


In a saucepan, combine the milk and cream and heat over medium-low heat until very hot but not boiling. Gradually add the chocolate to the hot liquid, stirring constantly with a wooden spoon until the chocolate is completely melted and the mixture is smooth. In a small cup, dissolve the cornstarch in a few tablespoons of water. Add the dissolved cornstarch to the chocolate mixture and stir constantly until it is almost as thick as a pudding.
