Hot Chocolate with Thermomix

Imagine a Hot Chocolate in a fine porcelain white cup: it's the classic image of a cold winter, when you are at home, being snug. A real pleasure, especially with a whipped cream topping... :-P

There are many recipe for the preparation of Hot Chocolate with Thermomix. Today my proposal is A Hot Chocolate in Cup (in Italian) by Paola of Anice e Cannella.

As Paola rightly says, the hot chocolate mixture is also a great gift idea, a very original idea. Really, has anyone ever made a gift like hot chocolate mixture for Christmas?

Imagine it in a pretty glass jar, with a colourful ribbon bow, directions for presentation written in a lovely way. Sweet in every sense, isn't it?

So, if you want to do a Christmas gift that is chocolate to the nth power, this recipe I'm going to give you is perfect. Otherwise you can make it for yourself and use it when you fancy chocolate. Sometimes we need to cuddle ourself and satisfy a whim.

Compared to Paola's recipe, I changed quantities and I added a spoon of cinnamon. I love cinnamon and, as I already said for the Apple Pie, it creates a Christmas flavour.

With this mixture you can prepare the same hot chocolate as those ones made in bars! I couldn't believe it...!

The only problem I found is that I would make hot chocolate every single afternoon...!

Mix Ingredients

(about 12 cups)
- 200 g of Dark Chocolate from 55% to 65%
- 150 g of Unsweetened Cocoa Powder
- 70 g of Brown Sugar
- 160 g of White Sugar
- 250 g of Potato Starch
- 1 Spoon of Cinnamon

How to Prepare Hot Chocolate Mix

Put Brown and White Sugar in the Thermomix bowl. 20 Sec. Speed Turbo.

Add chocolate in pieces. 20 Sec. Speed Turbo.

This step is really delicate. You must check the consistency after 10 Sec. and then do the other 10 Sec. Chocolate will melt if you mix too much.

Consistency must be that of a powder, it must be dry.

Add the other ingredients. Blend 15 Sec. Speed 6.

Put it all in a hermetic glass jar.

Place in a fresh and dry place.

How to prepare a cup of Hot Chocolate

Put 40 g of the mix in the Thermomix mixing bowl (about 3 spoons).

Add 180 g of milk. 3 Min. 80°C Speed 4.
