Decadent Thick And Creamy Hot Chocolate

This Decadent Chocolate Drink will Hit the Spot. It is relaxing and Heart Warming, Not to mention kids love it.  I have a few variations of Hot Chocolate’s but I think This is our Favorite.  It requires a little more work than normal Hot Chocolate but well worth the wait. You can add in any thing you wish from Cayenne Pepper and Cinnamon to Extracts and Chocolates. The possibilities are endless with this one. The smooth texture of this drink is so velvety and thick. You can adapt the Richness of the Chocolate by adding more or less Chocolate to your liking.
2 Egg Yolks, Room Temperature
3 to 4 c. Whole Milk ( you can use other types as well)
2 tbsp. Cornstarch
2/3 c. Sugar
1/2 to 1 c. Chocolate ( chips or shavings) ( milk chocolate, dark, Bitter sweet or semi sweet chocolate— Even white chocolate)
1 tsp. Vanilla Extract ( or other extracts – to taste)
Peppermint Extract
Orange Extract
Rum Extract or the real stuff ( to your taste of course. Or any other brand)
Almond Extract
Maple Extract
or Other Extracts to taste. You a little and go from there. You can add in but can not take out.
1/4 tsp. Cayenne Pepper ( to taste)
1/2 tsp. Ground Cinnamon
(1.)  In a Sauce Pan over Medium-Low Heat add the Milk and Sugar and let the Mixture heat up until Very Hot but not boiling. Do not boil.
(2.) In a small bowl whisk together the Egg yolks and Cornstarch together until well combined. When the milk is hot slowly ladle in the Hot Milk while whisking to temper the Egg Yolks with out scrambling them.  When throughly mixed pour the Egg Mixture into the rest of the Milk and whisk continuously until thickened. It will not get extremely thick but you will notice the difference.
(3.) Whisk in the desired Amount of Chocolate or White Chocolate and whisk until well combined and the Chocolates are completely melted and well mixed in.  Add in the vanilla and other desired flavorings and whisk until well combined. Ladle into mugs and serve Hot. Can top with marshmallows if desired. Decadent Thick and Creamy Hot Chocolate
