  • Summary

    Hot chocolate has never tasted so good! Regular hot chocolate gets an upgrade by adding ice cream, hot fudge sauce, and other gourmet toppings. I love making these hot chocolate floats with rich, creamy hot chocolate made from scratch, but if you prefer, you can substitute 4 cups of prepared hot chocolate instead.

    Ingredients

    • 1 cup heavy cream
    • 3 cups milk (I used whole milk)
    • 2-3 tbsp brown sugar, to taste
    • 1 tsp vanilla extract
    • Pinch salt
    • 6 oz good-quality bittersweet chocolate, finely chopped
    • 4 oz good-quality milk chocolate, finely chopped
    • 1 quart ice cream (vanilla, peppermint, and coffee all work well!)
    • Hot fudge sauce
    • Chocolate shavings or other decorations (optional)
