Best Ever Hot Chocolate

This luxurious hot chocolate comes in two versions, “naughty” (with alcohol) or “nice.” I’m partial to the naughty version… but you can’t dismiss the simple delight of a good homemade hot chocolate like the nice version! – Organic Valley Executive Chef Alex Brevik


4 cups Organic Valley Whole Milk, divided
2 ounces semi-sweet or bittersweet chocolate, finely chopped, or 1/3 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
1/4 cup sugar
2 tablespoons Organic Valley French Vanilla Half & Half
2 tablespoons Grand Marnier liqueur
2 tablespoons dark rum


1.) Combine 3 cups of the milk, chocolate and sugar in a medium saucepan. Cook over medium heat until chocolate is melted, whisking frequently. Bring just to a bare simmer.
2.) Whisk in remaining 1 cup milk, half & half, liqueur and rum; cook just until hot, but do not allow to boil.

For “nice” version: Omit half & half, liqueur and rum and proceed as recipe directs.

I vote for the nice version, although it has added sugar I will use dark cocoa over the chips with a tad bit of grassfed butter to smooth it out.
