Christmas is such a special time of year to me! Most importantly, it is special because it is a time to reflect on Christ's birth. Jesus is the best gift of all! The Christmas traditions that our family has made over the years are also special to me, and yummy, easy recipes like this one really help to make the season bright! :)
Prep time: 5 min
Cook time: 15 min
Makes 6 servings
3 ounces unsweetened baking chocolate
1 1/2 cups water
1/3 cup sugar
Dash of salt (I use about an 1/8 of a tsp.)
4 1/2 cups milk
1. Heat the chocolate and water in a large saucepan over medium heat and stir constantly until the chocolate is melted and the mixture is smooth.
2. Stir in the sugar and the salt and heat to boiling. Reduce heat. Simmer uncovered for four minutes, continue to stir constantly. Stir in milk, and heat just until hot (do not boil because skin will form on top).
3. Stir until smooth. Serve immediately. Optional: Serve with whipped topping or marshmallows.
