Cream Of Chocolate

Cream Of Chocolate
Alejandra Garcia for NPR /

Because of the sheer purity and richness of the chocolate, I keep the serving portions quite small. Even for a chocolate lover like me, a large serving is just too much to handle.

Makes 10 shot-size glasses

1 2/3 cups whole or skim milk

14 ounces dark chocolate

About 3/4 cup (200 grams) butter, melted

Cut the chocolate into small pieces and set aside in large bowl. Boil the milk and pour over chocolate pieces.

Add the melted butter slowly and fold delicately until the mixture becomes smooth and uniform.

Pour the mixture into shot-size glasses or dessert cups and place in refrigerator for 2 hours before serving. Decorate with red berries or mint leaves.
