Hot and Cold

Tips: When the cold and short daylight hours have you down, try a mug of this. It goes together quickly and without much effort, but it’s rich and creamy and very comforting. This must be served immediately once it’s done, of course.

Yield: 1 Serving

Ingredients:

  • 1 ounce best-quality bittersweet chocolate, finely chopped
  • 2 Tbsp. water
  • 2 to 3 tsp. granulated sugar, preferably superfine
  • Few grains of salt
  • 1 Tbsp. unsweetened, alkalized (Dutch process) cocoa powder
  • 3/4 cup plus 2 Tbsp. whole milk
  • 1 small scoop (about 1/4 cup) slightly softened chocolate OR coffee ice cream

Method:
You’ll need a mug of about 12 ounce (or slightly larger) capacity.

Into a 2 cup glass liquid measure, drop chocolate, water, sugar, and salt. Microwave at medium (50%) power until hot (about 10 to 20 seconds). Whisk well until chocolate is melted (mixture may not be smooth). Whisk in cocoa powder. In separate glass liquid measure, heat milk at high (100%) power until very hot. Gradually whisk into chocolate mixture. Scrape bottom and sides of 2 cup measure with rubber spatula.

Heat hot chocolate at high (100%) power until very hot, about 30 seconds. Meanwhile, place scoop of slightly softened ice cream into mug. Pour hot chocolate over ice cream, which should float to the surface. Serve immediately.
