2 cups whole milk
2 cup heavy cream
7 tablespoons organic sugar
3 teaspoons arrowroot powder (or ORGANIC cornstarch)
3/4 cup chocolate chips (try dark chocolate for a whole new flavor!)
In a saucepan, whisk together the milk, the cream and sugar. Set the saucepan over medium-low heat and cook until it starts to bubble around the edges.
While the milk mixture is heating, scoop out about 1/4 cup of the milk mixture and whisk it together with the cornstarch until it is smooth. Once the milk mixture starts bubbling around the edges, add the milk/cornstarch mixture and whisk until it’s heated through, about 1 minute.
Add the the chopped chocolate and whisk together until it’s smooth and thick enough to coat a spoon, about 5 minutes. Remove from the heat, pour into mugs and serve with whipped cream if desired (this recipe filled four standard coffee mugs for me, but it's pretty rich, so I could definitely see only having a half cupful if you prefer). The drink will continue to thicken if it is left to sit off the heat.
