This has nothing do with anything …except maybe comfort …which I suppose is similar to enjoying music.

I came up with “Frankie’s Super Great Hot Chocolate Recipe” a few years ago.  It was a wintery day and I was jonsen for some hot cocoa.  Dang, we ran out of the typical powdery instant packaged crap.  But, I had a bag of my favorite Dove Dark Chocolate candies on the counter.  So I thought I’d throw some of the chocolate pieces in warm milk and see what happens.  What’s the worst that could happen, I make a mess?  Not like I’ve never done that before.


It was amazing.  I couldn’t believe it, the little chocolate squares all melted without a problem and made the milk creamy smooth and delightfully chocolatey.  (Do I have you craving for some, yet?)  I experimented a little with the amount of chocolate squares, and came up with the recipe below:

Dove Promises Dark ChocolateDove Promises Milk Chocolate

  • 1 cup milk
  • 2 Dove Promises squares – Silky Smooth Dark Chocolate
  • 2 Dove Promises squares – Silky Smooth Milk Chocolate
  • Warm the milk in a sauce pan over medium heat with the 4 Dove chocolate squares (unwrapped – foil tastes weird).  Stir continuously until all is melted.  You’re heating up milk, so be careful not to boil it over and make an ungodly mess.  Makes one serving.

For my taste, I think the key is mixing the flavors of Dark and Milk Chocolate.  If you don’t have both in the house, just one flavor works, too.  To make more than one serving, add more chocolate.  4 chocolate squares per cup of milk is actually quite rich, so adjust according to taste.  Using 6 squares (3 dark, 3 milk) works great for two servings.

That’s it, enjoy!

    I got some dark chocolate Promises for the first time a few days ago and it wasn’t long before I was like “These would be really good for making hot chocolate.” I haven’t done it myself yet, though.

      Okay, I just made some of this and it is pretty awesome. I only had the dark Promises, though, so it didn’t turn out as sweet as I’d have liked, so I added some amaretto coffee creamer. Also made it with a mixture of milk and half and half, and a couple pinches of salt.
