Hot Dark Chocolate with Basil
2 mugfuls milk (or milk substitute)
Dark chocolate (approx. 2 oz of bar chocolate or chocolate chip morsels, or 4 tablespoons cocoa powder, just make sure it’s at least 70% cacao)
4 leaves fresh basil
Sweetener (optional, useful if you are using unsweetened chocolate)
Heat milk with basil in a double boiler on low to medium heat.
Add chocolate. If you are using a chocolate bar, be sure to chop it up.
Whisk until the chocolate is thoroughly melted and combined.
Remove basil, pour into mugs, sweeten to taste, and enjoy.
Follow stovetop instructions, but make sure to chop your chocolate extra fine. And remember to remove the mixture to whisk it every 30 seconds.
