This homemade hot chocolate recipe uses dark chocolate, whole milk and orange peel for perfectly balanced rich and creamy mug of comfort.
1 1/2 cups whole milk
1 tablespoon powdered sugar
2-3 strips of orange peel (try to get as little of the white part of the orange as possible)
1 ounce dark chocolate (I used 72%)
Optional toppings: whipped cream, shaved chocolate, orange zest
Combine milk, sugar, orange peel in a small sauce pan and place over medium heat.
In a small bowl break the chocolate up into small pieces. Stir milk frequently and heat until hot but not boiling. Pour hot milk over chocolate and stir until chocolate is melted. Serve topped with whipped cream, shaved chocolate and orange zest.
