3 cups whole milk
1/3 cup water
1/3 cup sugar
6 oz. dark chocolate (i use one that's 80% cocoa)
break chocolate into small pieces (i put mine in a baggie and beat it with my rolling pin--very therapeutic) bring milk, water, and sugar just to a boil and remove from heat. whisk in chocolate until it is melted. using an immersion blender, blend the chocolate for about a minute until it is frothy. if you don't have an immersion blender, you can put the chocolate in a regular blender and blend it for a minute. it's very yummy served with a toasted egg bread (challah or brioche, for example). but it's best served as an accompaniment to decorating for christmas. yummy!
