Okay, I know it’s Spring and everyone is thinking about carrot cake and lemonade. But my friend Nikki CB shared the coolest tip for easy hot chocolate with me and now I need to share it with you, too. RIGHT NOW. So, today we’re having hot chocolate. Hopefully you’re experiencing unseasonably cold weather wherever you are so you can enjoy this recipe pronto!
Get ready for the yummiest easy hot chocolate you’ll ever have. No finely chopping chocolate with a knife necessary!
Nikki was saying how you can visit Lindt chocolate stores or something and they make hot chocolate simply by dropping Lindt truffles right into hot milk. That’s it. As soon as she said it I realized how genius it is. After all, that is some darn good chocolate. Also, think about how those truffles just melt in your mouth. If they melt in your mouth, you better believe they’ll melt in hot milk.
I finally tried the trick and it worked like a charm. The other fun part of Lindt hot chocolate is that you can easily make different flavors of hot chocolate. White hot chocolate, caramel hot chocolate, dark hot chocolate, extra dark hot chocolate, milk hot chocolate. Whatever your favorite truffle flavor is, now it can be your favorite hot chocolate flavor.
Thank you, Nikki. And you’re welcome, everyone else.
- - 1 cup milk
- - 3 or 4 Lindt truffles, your favorite flavor (I would avoid hazelnut since it has chunks and wouldn't lend itself well to melting in milk)
- Fill a mug with milk.
- Microwave for 2 minutes on high., stirring halfway through cooking time.
- Add 3 or 4 Lindt truffles (I prefer 4) and whisk into the milk.
