• ‘Go-to’ hot chocolate with a twist

29 Dec

NEW YORK — Looking for something a little out of the ordinary to chase away the winter chill? Jenn Smith, general manager of the Astor Center, shares with us her “go-to” hot chocolate recipe just in time for you to use as a New Year’s Eve treat.

(Serves 4)

4 ounces dark bittersweet chocolate, chopped into small pieces
¼ cup cocoa powder
¼ cup sugar
½ cup heavy cream
2 cups whole milk
4 teaspoons Chartreuse Green

Mix dry ingredients in a small saucepan over low heat, stirring until chocolate melts. Whisk in heavy cream and beat with spoon until sugar melts. Whisk in milk, more or less than called for depending on how thick and dark you prefer, and continue to stir until hot.

Distribute evenly among four mugs, and add one teaspoon Chartreuse to each mug.
