Best Ever Hot Chocolate


I am excited to share this jewel of a recipe with you.  It is a special drink, so make it when you are feeling.. special!:)  This would not be an every night kind of drink- too expensive and not good for the body- but for a treat, I say go for it!
It combines 2 brands of chocolate..Godiva and Dove.  I know, very indulgent.

I got the recipe from a very special lady, Ilo Tefft.  She told me about the recipe almost a year ago and I have not forgotten about it, but I was too cheap to buy a bottle of Godiva Chocolate Liqueur.  I had told a close friend about the recipe a while back, and guess what? For my birthday she bought me a bottle of Godiva Milk Chocolate Liqueur! How great is that? It is a beautiful bottle full of creamy milk chocolate.  Just a teaspoon in a cup of coffee creates a delightfully warm, evening drink, but.. back to the hot chocolate.  Ilo was kind enough send me the recipe again, and last night I was in creamy, dreamy, chocolate heaven.

Here is what you do:
*Pour about 8 oz milk into a mug (I used whole milk-yea, baby!)
*Drop 3 Dove chocolates into the mug of milk.
*Heat in microwave until hot (less then 2 minutes)
*Add Godiva Chocolate liqueur to taste, 1-2 teaspoons.
*Add 1 1/2 tsp sugar (optional)
*Use fancy frother to whip it up. (or just a spoon:))
*Sit back, relax, and sip!


(I love my Aerolatte Milk Frother, it makes me happy!  This would make a great gift!)
To cut down on cost, you can also use cocoa powder.  Heat the milk in your mug, add 1 Tbls Cocoa powder and a little less than 1 Tbls sugar.  Whip it up, add the Godiva liqueur, whip again, enjoy!

  1. Do you have any recommendations for a similar type hot chocolate for someone who is a teetotaler? Maybe just a piece or two of Godiva chocolate thrown in for good measure?

    Thanks for any ideas you might be able to offer!!

  2. I think your question is an important one, so important that it has inspired me to do a Hot Chocolate part 2 blog post to offer different options!

    I've got some ideas, and will be posting about them in the next couple days.

    Thank you for your comment Peggy!
