The first time I had orgasmic hot chocolate was in Cambridge, Massachusetts, at a fancy, fussy chocolate shop called Burdick. It was below 10 degrees outside and their fresh, steaming mug of thick cocoa tasted planets better than the powdered shit I had known all my life. Ever since then I’ve come to love homemade hot chocolate—you know, the kind that uses real melted chocolate?!
Here’s some Sea Salt Hot Chocolate with Butterscotch Whipped Cream we made the other night. It has melted dark chocolate and milk chocolate, whole milk, whipping cream, vanilla extract, a little sugar, and Maldon sea salt, topped with whipped cream whisked with melted butterscotch. So swoony and rich, a tiny ol’ cup is all you need.
