Hot Chocolate Recipe

Here's an attractive young couple doing their self-penned dance "The Hot Chocolate" to the 1976 hit You Sexy Thing.

You'll feel like doing the same when you take your first sip of this hot chocolate. This recipe will kind of take you back to the hot chocolate you had when you were a kid, but--rich, sophisticated, and not too sweet--this is definitely hot chocolate for grown-ups.

It's so rich I like to serve it in small doses, about half a cup per person is plenty. It's all vegetarian: vegans can substitute soy milk for the whole milk.

Hot Chocolate (Serves 2 sexy things)

1 cup whole milk, half-and-half or soy milk
1/2 cup bittersweet chocolate chips (I like to use Ghirardelli 60% Cocoa Bittersweet Choc. Chips but any equivalent substitute in bittersweet chocolate is fine)

1. Heat milk in a saucepan over low to medium low heat.

2. Dump in the chocolate chips and stir gently with a whisk until completely dissolved.

3. Pour into two small tea cups.

4. Top with the tiniest sprinkle of ground cinnamon, grated chocolate, whipped cream and'or marshmallow fluff (Marshmallows often have animal-derived gelatin, but the fluff in jars such as Kraft Jet-Puffed Marshmallow Creme are totally vegetarian, though they do contain egg whites).

5. For an extra disco-style treat add a shot of Bailey's Irish Cream, Amaretto or Godiva Chocolate Liqueur.

5. Drink and sing with me ... I believe in miracles. Where did you come from? You sexy thing.

Just admit you love the night-life. You've got to boogie... on the disco ra-houuund, yeah!
