  22. Erica Lea says:

    Selena: I’m not sure how freezing would affect the mushrooms. They may get soggy. You could try freezing one or two to test the results!


Hot Chocolate + The Winner

Yesterday, I had a completely new experience: homemade hot chocolate. Not the kind made with cocoa powder and sugar. No. The Kind made with REAL chocolate.

Oh my. It was like drinking chocolate pudding; it was so rich I couldn’t finish it in one sitting!


Notes: I used maple syrup for the added sweetener and bittersweet chocolate chips for the chocolate. I also added a bit of cream to the milk. Perhaps next time I will use only milk as it was so rich.

Homemade Hot Chocolate

Adapted from Elise Bauer

Printable Recipe


  • 3 1/2 cups whole milk
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream
  • 8 ounces chocolate, preferably dark
  • 3 teaspoons maple syrup or natural sweetener of choice
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt


1) Chop the chocolate very finely.

2) In a medium saucepan, bring the milk and cream to a low simmer over medium heat, whisking occasionally.

3) Add the chocolate, maple syrup, vanilla, and salt. Whisk vigorously until all of the chocolate has melted. Cook for an additional 4 minutes, whisking constantly.

4) Serve with maple whipped cream (recipe follows) if desired.

Serves 4 generously


Maple Whipped Cream


  • 1/2 cup heavy whipping cream
  • 2 teaspoons maple syrup (more if you like your whipped cream very sweet)

    Oh wow! This looks scrumptious! I may just have to try it! Yum…Yum!

  2. Ooooh, that looks fab-u-lous! We have a very cold, windy, wintry day here today, so I reckon that sitting in my favourite spot, looking out onto the Atlantic waves, with a cup of THAT….. might just be the perfect way to spend the next hour ;) x

  3. Just beautiful, Erica! This looks so warm and comforting. I might just make some now as it’s freezing in my apartment. I love your mug and it’s pretty pattern too.

  4. Holly says:

    Wow. I’d leave out the maple, but this looks divine!

  5. Shawna says:

    yum! i need to make some hot chocolate the next time we get a cold front – today the high is 78!

  6. Whoa, I can only imagine how rich that must be! I love your cup… so pretty!

  7. wow perfect treat for our oklahoma blizzard today!!!

  8. Liz says:

    This looks amazing, the perfect winter treat!

  9. Andrea says:

  10. rachel says:

    Just received 16 inches of snow last night so I knew it meant I should try this recipe ;)Made the hot chocolate for dessert and it is the best I have ever tasted! All my sisters agreed!!

  11. This looks so comforting. A real treat.

    I’d love for your to submit them to Vegolicious, a vegetarian food photo gallery where readers can browse beautiful photos to discover new recipes and wonderful blogs. If you would like to share this recipe with our readers please submit a photo along with a link to this post.

  12. Jenna says:

    Real hot chocolate is the best. Lovin’ it for a cosy Sunday afternoon. Your pictures look great.

  13. This looks dangerously good. I’ve had hot chocolate (white) at a cafe that had white chocolate. Amazing sugar rush and amazingly tasty…

  14. Rachel M says:

    I love hot chocolate, so I was excited to see the recipe. It looks really good…does the maple syrup add a funny aftertaste or just blend in? I’ve tried maple syrup in my hot chocolate and experienced that before. Any ideas?
    God bless!

  15. Erica Lea says:

    Rachel M: I’ve grown up on maple syrup, so I love the flavor. But if you dislike it you could always substitute regular sugar or a natural sweetener of choice.

  16. Eliana says:

    You had me at “drinking chocolate pudding”. This looks incredible tasty.

  17. This should come with a warning: If you stood on your bathroom scales last night and got something of a shock, read no further.

    But, of course, I did read. Oh boy! This looks and sounds beyond-words good. Toooo good

  18. PinkLizzy says:

    Oh my word! I’m going to buy the ingredients and make this over the weekend. I can’t wait!

  19. Sara F. says:

    This sounds sooooo good! I will try it soon! I also love your cup, where did it come from and can I get one? :)

  20. I am in love. In LOVE, I tell you. I munch on dark chocolate almost every night and I love that this recipe offers a new way to indulge in something so sweet, thick, creamy, and warm. Perfect in time for the holidays.


  21. Alysha says:

    My Auntie went to my cousins house for a Christmas gathering and said my cousin served this and it was amazing! I can’t wait to try to make it tomorrow!
