Preparation water and cinnamon hot chocolate

Add a little water and stir until a very thick cream is formed*. Now you can gradually add the remaining water by stirring with a kitchen whisk.

Add water and mix

*I advise you to add water a little at a time, so as to form a thick batter, this allows you to avoid the formation of lumps during cooking.

Now bring it to the fire over low heat, stir continuously until it starts to boil. If you want a much thicker chocolate, cook for a few minutes.

Hot chocolate

Serve immediately in a large cup or two small cups, depending on how much you are craving chocolate or if you share it with someone dear to you.

Serve hot chocolate

You could serve it with currants and mint leaves or with a nice sprinkling of cinnamon and maybe with orange peel.


You can also use almond milk or oat milk.
If you want a more full-bodied hot chocolate, take 50 g of 70% dark chocolate, and reduce it to powder with the help of a powerful mixer or with the Thermomix. Use chocolate powder instead of cocoa.
Instead of cornstarch you can use potato starch.
