Drinking chocolate has got to be the best, followed by standard hot chocolate. What is the difference? The amount you drink and the fact that drinking chocolate is so thick and rich. You honestly don't need that much. However if you want to spread it a bit thin, prepare (fully) then add more milk to taste. A splash of sherry is good too.
I gave this to my husband as a stocking stuffer and he loved it! He loves rich cocoa and said this was some of the best he'd had!
I ordered this because I miss a particular thick chocolate drink from a coffee shop that was discontinued years ago, and I am constantly trying to find something similar to it :) This isn't quite that, but it's pretty good! I am not sure I'm getting the ratio of milk to chocolate right (I don't have a fluid ounce measuring spoon nor do I have a kitchen scale to get exactly 19 ounces of chocolate), but I'm doing about 4:1 tbsp milk:chocolate. I'll keep playing with the recipe. In any case, it definitely beats out packaged powder hot chocolate mix!
