Recipe: Cioccolata Calda

Cioccolata calda (Hot chocolate)

2 tablespoons of good quality cocoa 1 – 2 tablespoons sugar
1 tablespoon cornstarch
8 ounces milk (skim is ok!)


In a saucepan, mix the cocoa, sugar and corn flour together very well. Pour in a little milk and mix well, add more milk, and mix – a little at a time.

Turn on the heat and gently heat until it starts to boil.

Remove from heat, continue stirring – it will be thickened and smooth!

Top with whipped topping if desired!

Microwaving directions:

In a microwave safe bowl (prefer a 4 cup liquid measuring cup).  Mix as described above, and microwave in 30 second increments, stirring each time (watch – do not let boil over!) Contributed by Jeanne Florini for Ciao St. Louis November 26, 2017
