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.
