Gearstripper’s Hot Chocolate

In KRAMPUSNACHT, Gearstripper is given a thermos full of some very special hot chocolate. Regular folks like us can’t get hot chocolate like that, but the recipe below comes about as close as you can get outside of the North Pole.

  • 6 oz shaved milk chocolate (I recommend Callebaut)
  • 1 pint heavy cream
  • Pinch cinnamon
  • Whipped cream

To prepare:

Melt the chocolate in a double boiler. Slowly stir in the cream.  Heat the cream until warm, stirring constantly. Add the cinnamon and top with the whipped cream. Put a candy cane in for good measure.

Warning: This is extremely rich. You may not be able to drink a mug all by yourself, so snuggle up with someone to share it.

Enjoy!
