Italian Hot Chocolate

May 31, 2011

Tanya brought this decadent treat to my attention and I just had to try it.

The recipe comes from Alida and O!M!G! it is the most amazing hot chocolate I have ever had, totally worth taking the time to make it on the stove.

So without further ado…


  • ½ cup cocoa
  • ½ cup muscavado or treacle sugar
  • 1 tablespoon Maizena (cornflour)
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 cup milk


  • Add all ingredients to a saucepan and mix well.
  • Continue to stir over a low heat until the mixture thickens and is heated through.

My yummy attempt 🙂

Makes two large and very delicious mugs of hot chocolate.

  1. Glad you enjoyed it 🙂 I’ve used it for an ice cream sauce too. And added a bit of Cointreau for a bit of an orangey flavour.
