Real Hot Chocolate
(Warme Chocolade Melk, Le Vrai Chocolat Chaud)


The Belgian people love chocolate as much as the rest of us, and here is how they like their hot chocolate.



  1. Heat the milk and the vanilla bean in a pot over moderate heat just until bubbles start to form around the side of the pan.
  2. Reduce the heat to low and add the chocolate, whisking occasionally until melted.
  3. Remove from the heat and remove the vanilla bean.
  4. Just before serving, whisk the milk vigorously to create foam on the surface.

Serves 4 to 6.
