Velvety-smooth and intensely chocolatey, this hot chocolate will make you swear off mixes. The blending might seem unneccesary, but be sure to follow this step to achieve the perfect, smooth texture.

Adapted from Doris Greenspan's Paris Sweets.


Whisk together the milk, water, and sugar in a medium saucepan over medium heat. Whisk periodically until the sugar has dissolved. Increase the flame to medium-high, and bring to a boil. As soon as it comes to a boil, remove from heat, and whisk in the chocolate. If you have an immersion blender, blend the hot chocolate in the saucepan. If not, transfer to a regular blender, holding a dish towel tightly over the lid as you blend on high speed, taking care with the hot liquid. Blend for 1 minute, until the hot choclate is very smooth and frothy. Pour into mugs, and enjoy!
