Chocolate lovers will love this beverage.

What is it? A drink or dessert? What is the difference between a drink and a dessert when it’s so delectable? French-style, rich and opulent hot chocolate It’s trending TikTok is like a sippable bonbon—creamy, chocolatey, and steamy enough to warm you up on a chilly day. Add more whipped cream You can make the most delicious mugs of cocoa by adding chocolate shavings. It takes only a few minutes to prepare and you only need a few standard American ingredients. Here’s how to make the viral French hot chocolate: 

For a fail-proof, very rich hot cocoa, Chef Michael Romano of Fouquet’s NYC at Hotel Barriere recommends a one, two, three ratio for the recipe. “The best ratio of dairy to chocolate is objective to how thick and rich you like your hot cocoa to be,” he says “I usually like to use a one, two, three ratio: one part cream, two parts chocolateThe three parts of the equation are: milk. So it’s still rich and creamy, but thin enough to drink and not too thick and unctuous.” With this ratio, the amount of chocolate will be 50 percent the total amount of dairy, for a super-chocolatey sipper.

Begin by heating your milk in a small saucepan. Heat on low. Although cream is a favorite of many creators, it may seem a little too heavy for some. Consider using a different type of cream. half and half, which is half cream and half milk, or stick to Chef Romano’s ratio. A dash of cinnamon can be added for a fun twist. vanilla, cinnamonAdd the espresso powder to warm dairy 

Followers of a plant-based diet Also, you can substitute vegan creamer for non-dairy milks You can recreate the experience. Romano recommends oat milk, particularly the barista versions which typically have a high fat content, “with the richness and smooth texture needed for a hot cocoa,” he says. 

Add the milk to the bowl while it is heating. break it into small pieces. Following the one, two, three, ratio, if you’re using ½ cup cream, you’ll want one cup of chocolate and 1 ½ cups of milk. This recipe works best with chocolate that has a higher cocoa percentage (over 50%). The richer your French-style hot chocolate will taste, the better. This recipe is well worth the extra cost, as it goes further than you might expect.

Romano recommends using Valrhona chocolate. “It is very high quality, so you can use less of it to get the same punch,” he says. “They also have a large variety of chocolate available, so you can really dial in a nice balance of milk and dark.” If you want to play around with the recipe, Romano suggests trying the brand’s caramelized milk chocolate, called Caramelia, that is “delicious in a hot cocoa with subtle undertones of caramel,” he describes.  

When the milk has boiled gently, add it to your chocolate and whisk it until it melts. 

A bowl with milk and cream is the best way to melt chocolate. I like to warm the cream and milk with any other ingredients, such as vanilla, cinnamon, espresso, or cocoa. Next, add the warm milk to your chocolate. Whisk it until it melts and emulsifies completely.

Take the mixture into a mug. You can either immediately sip it or add whipped cream or chocolate shavings. Voila!
