Slow Cooked Hot Chocolate


I didn't know that this recipe was hiding in my library. Make a guess, how old is this hot chocolate recipe? I made this in 2013. Yes! Almost 10 years old! And I was surprised that I have about 500 unposted recipes! I may need to revamp and recreate them 1 by 1.



Anyway, I can't really remember where I get this idea from; probably in a cookbook provided by the slow cooker company when I purchased it eons ago. I used to top this hot chocolate off with some store-bought marshmallows. I figured, maybe I should make my own marshmallow fluff. After sipping, I realized how nostalgic this hot chocolate is.


 

Ingredients:

(Serve 2)

  • Hot Chocolate:

  • Oat Milk Homemade / Milk, 500g

  • Heavy Whipping Cream, 150g

  • High Quality Dark Chocolate 70% Preferably Callebaut or Valrhona, 150g

  • Spiced Rum / Cognac, 2 TBSP

  • Marshmallow Fluff:

  • Water, 26g

  • Granulated Sugar, 50g

  • Pure Honey / Maple Syrup, 85g

  • Egg White, 1

  • Cream of Tartar, Pinch

 

Equipment:

  • Sauce Pot

  • Hand / Stand Mixer

  • Slow Cooker

  • Blow Torch

 

Directions:

  1. Prepare the hot chocolate.

  2. In a slow cooker, add all the ingredients.

  3. Mix until well combined.

  4. Turn the heat up to low, cover and cook for 2 hrs.

  5. After 2 hrs, give it a stir to combine well.

  6. Cover and cook for another 15 to 20 mins on high.

  7. While the hot chocolate is cooking, prepare the marshmallow fluff.

  8. In a sauce pot over medium-high heat, add water, sugar and honey.

  9. Cook.

  10. While that's cooking, whip the egg white and cream of tartar with a hand or stand mixer until soft peaks form.

  11. Once the sugar mixture is about to turn from amber to dark amber, or 115 degree celsius / 240 fahrenheit, remove it from the heat and immediately add it to the egg white mixture gradually in a streamline while still whipping at the same time.

  12. Continue whipping until thicken and turns into a glossy shine.

  13. It should be stiff peaks too.

  14. Give the hot chocolate a quick stir and pour it into serving glasses.

  15. Top it off with some dollops of that marshmallow fluff.

  16. Burn the fluff with a blowtorch.

  17. Serve immediately.


Cheers!
