Italian Hot Chocolate Recipe/ How to make Italian Hot Chocolate
Are you a chocolate lover like me? Then this Italian Hot Chocolate will definitely be a joyous treat for you...Hot chocolate is also called as chocolate tea or drinking chocolate in many places. The preparation method varies from place to place. I have given the recipe of hot chocolate which is prepared mostly in some European countries especially in Italy during winters. This is widely popular across the world and it has a slightly thicker consistency, which is served with whipping cream and marshmallows. In Spain Hot chocolate is often served with churros and in some other places it is served for breakfast. In this drink the milk is combined with cocoa and sugar. I have added some chocolate chips to get that richness, but you can even add dark chocolate instead. Cornstarch is used in this hot chocolate to add thickness. I din't add any whippping cream as it may turn very heavy but you can add cream on top to make a perfect Hot chocolate. I am sure nothing can be more delightful to treat your winter evenings than a hot cup of chocolate. Learn how to make this delicious hot chocolate with stepwise pics.
