Hot Chocolate With Brandy Print recipe Ingredients 5 Oz. bittersweet chocolate chips 1 1/2 Cups milk 1/4 cup heavy cream 1/2 teaspoon cornstarch 2 Tablespoons brandy (you may want more depending on your taste) Directions Over medium heat, melt the chocolate chips. (It’s labor intensive: constantly stir to avoid scalding.) Very slowly, mix in the milk. (Do not add all the milk at once; otherwise the chocolate will not blend evenly throughout the mixture.) Just as slowly, whisk in the heavy cream and cornstarch. Slowly bring to a boil until you find your preferred consistency. Then, add the brandy.
