Inspired by the thick cocoa in Tim Allen’s “The Santa Clause” movie, this hot cocoa will satisfy even the strongest, most serious sweet tooth out there. This isn’t the watery, instant, Nestle-powder hot chocolate that I grew up drinking. It pours as thick as lava and looks like heaven in a cup. Drinking one sip of this delectable drink will bring an enveloping sweetness as rich as eating a slice of dark chocolate cake.
- 1 cup Half-and-half
- 1 cup Milk
- 6 ounces, weight Baker’s Semi-sweet Chocolate
- 1 Tablespoon Instant Coffee Powder (or 2 Tablespoons Coffee)

Combine all ingredients and cook over medium-high heat, stirring constantly until all the chocolate melts. Top with marshmallows, whipped cream, or any other delicious topping you wish.
