homemade hot chocolate shots

November 24, 2010 | Sweet Recipes | Comments

The holidays are quickly approaching and lucky enough for us SoCal residents the weather has been pretty chilly! Perfect for some hot chocolate ; ) I’ve never been satisfied with the hot chocolate made from the packaged powder. I always find myself dumping two packets in one mug to get the actual consistency and flavor I love. I decided it was finally time to make some rich, thick and super chocolaty homemade hot cocoa! And surprisingly, it turned out exactly what I was dreaming of! So rich it’s almost impossible to drink a full cup, so serve some in mini shot glasses with a marshmallow on top! I promise your friends and family will love sipping on this chocolate delight : )


  • 2  teaspoons  cornstarch
  • 4  cups  milk, divided
  • 2  (3.5-oz.) dark chocolate bars (at least 70% cacao), chopped 
  • 1/4  cup  honey (calls for 1/3, but I thought think 1/4 is better) 
  • 1  teaspoon  vanilla extract
  • Pinch of salt


1. Whisk together cornstarch and 1/2 cup milk until smooth.
2. Cook remaining 3 1/2 cups milk in a large, nonaluminum saucepan over medium heat until bubbles appear around edge of saucepan (about 4 minutes; do not boil). Whisk in chocolate, honey, vanilla extract, and salt until blended and smooth. Whisk in cornstarch mixture.
3. Bring milk mixture to a light boil, whisking frequently (about 4 minutes). Remove from heat. Let cool slightly. (Mixture will thicken as it cools.) Serve with a marshmallow on top.
