I picked up my first Mast Brother bar of chocolate at Whole Foods the other day and decided to use some of it to make hot chocolate! I usually make my signature hot chocolate with Bernard Callebaut cocoa powder and honey, but a chocolate bar works just as well. It was also really hard to break the beautiful packaging from the chocolate! Seriously the Mast Brother's have the nicest chocolate wrapping paper. Ever.
To start, I used a mug to measure out exactly how much milk I wanted for one serving. Then I poured it into a saucepan and put the burner on medium-low heat and added a few chunks of chocolate. Add more chocolate to your taste, you also may need to add another sweetener like sugar or agave syrup if you think the chocolate is too bitter (this one was 74% cacao). I also used coconut milk instead of normal milk which I find has a nicer taste than soy, and has a thick, creamy texture reminiscent of whole milk (but a bit healthier!). Stir the chocolate till it melts and blends fully into the milk, and voila! Delicious hot chocolate!
