Emily and Eric’s Cocoa for Two
- About 1/3 of your favorite flat solid chocolate bar (Green & Blacks is one of my favorites, the 60% or 72% cocoa, it breaks nicely into 3rds) broken into smaller pieces along its creases.
- 2 cups milk
- A heaping tablespoon of brown sugar (or to taste)
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
The complicated directions:
Put the milk and chocolate pieces in a saucepan over high heat, whisking constantly as it warms. When the chocolate is mostly melted, whisk in the sugar and vanilla. Keep cooking until the milk boils and almost overflows then quickly remove from heat (something about letting it get to that point seems to make it extra yummy).
