American Hot Chocolate with Chocolate Whipped Cream

1/2 c heavy cream

4 T plus 1 t Scharffenberger cocoa

4 T plus 1/2 t sugar

2 1/2 oz Scharffenberger bittersweet chocolate (70 to 75 percent cacao), chopped

large pinch kosher salt

5 c whole milk

Additional grated chocolate for garnish if desired

  • 1. In a small bowl, whisk cream with 1 teaspoon cocoa and 1/2 teaspoon sugar until it forms firm peaks. Set aside.
  • 2. In medium saucepan, combine the chocolate, remaining cocoa and sugar, and salt and milk. Place mixture over medium heat; whisk gently. Once chocolate melts and cocoa dissolves, raise heat to medium high; whisk more vigorously to form froth on surface. When mixture bubbles around edges and seems ready to boil, remove from heat. Do not let it boil. Ladle into 4 small cups with some froth on each. Spoon dollop of cocoa whipped cream on top, and sprinkle with grated chocolate.
