French Chocolate

If you have ever been to my parents house around the holidays you know my mothers love for this recipe. She makes it every year to go along with Christmas breakfast.
What is french chocolate? It is a really thick creme mixture that you mix into hot milk for a rich, deep, hot chocolate. So if you are a lover of hot chocolate during this cold season this is a recipe you should try.

2 1/2 ounces unsweetened chocolate
1/4 cup water
3/4 cup sugar
dash of salt
1/2 cup heavy cream, whipped

1. Melt chocolate in a saucepan.
2. Add water and cook over low heat until thick, stirring constantly.
3. Add salt and sugar and continue cooking for 4 minutes stirring constantly.
4. Cool thoroughly.
5. Fold chocolate mixture into whipped cream.

~To serve: heat up a mug of milk (you will want it a little hotter then usual because you store the french chocolate in the fridge and it will drastically cool down your milk once added). When milk is heated add a big spoonful (or two depending on how rich you like it) of the french chocolate. Enjoy!

~ This is a very rich drink so a little bit goes a long way.
