Rich & Creamy Hot Chocolate {Italian style}

Hello everyone!

How many of you watched the SuperBowl yesterday??... well, I hope you were all SeaHawks' fans, because for the Bronco Fans it has not been a very good afternoon.. :(
It was so disappointing that at the end of the game I had to find a way to cheer up and the first thing that popped in my mind was the Hot Chocolate I used to drink in Italy. What's better than a dense and luscious hot chocolate?? And when I say dense I mean it! Every time I make hot chocolate for my children (the store-bought kind) it's basically a hot chocolate-milk.  The kind I used to drink is like velvet, it sticks gently to the spoon.. but it's at the same time liquid enough to drink.
If you have never had it you should try it... and the secret is very simple!


  • Your favorite kind of Hot Chocolate {I used the "double chocolate" Starbucks brand}
  • 1 full tsp of Corn Starch each serving
  • sugar {only if you need it}
  • Cold Milk
Mix the cocoa powder and the corn starch together in a pot. Add as much milk as directed (usually one cup per serving). Stir on low heat... never stop stirring! Let it boil a little bit and serve hot.

Yesss! The corn-starch does the magic!
What's your favorite kind of hot-cocoa? Share your recipe... I would love to know!!!
