On cold days we find comfort and flavor in what has now become a classic in demand for snack, at home or in tea rooms: hot chocolate.

Easy to prepare and suitable for all ages, this magical drink finds everyone's consent and with the right mixture you can please even those suffering from particular allergies. In fact, it can also be consumed by coeliacs because it is gluten-free.

Just a little milk and a few tablespoons of cocoa 22/24 with addition of cornstarch and very little sugar, and that's it.

Tradition would require whipped cream for the sweet tooth but my advice is to taste it with the addition of fresh fruit, such as fresh raspberries, or chopped strawberries. If you have guests the "WoW!" effect is assured.


The recipe


  • 2 cups fresh whole milk
  • 6 tablespoons (tea) of classic chocolate mixture
  • raspberries or fresh strawberries at discretion


Melt the cocoa in fresh milk, in a saucepan.
Bring to the boil, stirring constantly to prevent lumps from forming.
Proceed for at least 6 or 8 minutes from the boil to thicken the preparation.

The mixture I used you can find here.
