Servings: 2


2 tablespoons butter

2 teaspoons to 1 tablespoon cornstarch

2 cups milk

4 tablespoons sugar

1 cup chopped chocolate or chocolate chips (white, dark, milk or your favorite combination)

1 to 2 Tablespoons chocolate hazelnut spread

Whipped cream for topping (optional)


Melt butter in a medium saucepan over low heat.

Whisk in cornstarch until combined and melty. 

If you want the hot chocolate thicker, use the  maximum amount of cornstarch.

Add in milk and sugar. 

Increase the heat gradually to medium-high. 

Bring to a boil, stirring constantly. Mixture will start to thicken.

Once the mixture begins to thicken, turn the heat down to low and add in the chocolate chips and hazelnut spread.

This wonderful warm dessert drink for the holidays is a much more decadent and luxurious version of your traditional hot chocolate as it is much thicker than normal. Stir constantly until well melted. Serve hot, topped with whipped cream. – Chef Rose
