Scott Campbell's Hot Chocolate Recipe
The secret to what some have called the best hot chocolate they've ever tasted? According to creator chef Scott Campbell of New Leaf Restaurant & Bar in New York City the answer is simple: "passion." (We say, that, and a whole lot of high-quality chocolate). Thick, rich, and almost-too-good-to-believe delicious, enjoy this fantastic hot chocolate as is, or try an "adults only" version, adding a touch of liqueur such as Kahlua, Bailey's, or Frangelico. — Maryse Chevriere
Pour milk and cocoa into a saucepot and bring it to a simmer. Add sugar and reduce heat to very low.
Next, add chocolate, stirring occasionally until all has melted, about 3-5 minutes.
Pour into a serving mug or glass (such as an Irish coffee or hot toddy glass) and top with marshmallows or whipped cream as desired.
