Perfect Hot Chocolate
- 5 oz. best-quality bittersweet or semisweet chocolate, finely chopped
- 1 qt. milk
- 1/2 tsp. pure vanilla extract
In a medium saucepan over medium heat, combine chocolate and milk; heat, whisking until chocolate is melted and milk is very hot and frothy, about 10 to 15 minutes. Remove from heat. Add vanilla; pour into a blender, filling halfway. Blend, holding lid in place (the hot liquid will expand), until frothy. Serve immediately.
