Steps involved in making hot chocolate
The first step is to slice 50 grams of sweet chocolate as per the required flavor. Place the sliced chocolate in a bowl at room temperature. Then mix the sliced chocolate in a small bowl for mixing and set it aside.
Then add 2 cups of milk to a pan and start boiling it. Add 2 tablespoons of sugar, or more if you like. You also need to consider the sweetness of the chocolate you use to make it. According to it, you can add more or less sugar.
Begin heating the milk at a low temperature and stirring frequently so that the sugar dissolves and the milk boils. Move the pan to the countertop once the milk has boiled. There is no need to boil it heavily. That may lead to burning at the bottom of the pan.
Now add the boiled milk to the bowl that you set aside with the sliced chocolate. Mix them well to mix the chocolate; the mixture must be smooth until the chocolate has melted completely. If the melted chocolate mix appears rough, the milk temperature is higher than usual.
No matter pour the bowl of melted chocolate into the pan with some hot milk mixture. The pan must not be heated on the burner. Mix the chocolate mixture with the hot milk.
Now add some flavor essence; add 1 teaspoon of the essence and mix until they are evenly mixed to experience the taste of essence in each sip. Then replace the hot chocolate in a cup.
After that, add whipped cream on top of the hot chocolate. It is important that the cream you added be at room temperature; chilled cream makes your drink cool faster than usual.
If you want a chocolatier flavor, sprinkle some chocolate powder on top of your chocolate caliente. If you wish, you can also add some vegetables and sauce to it.
