Parisian Drinking Chocolate #Choctoberfest 2018

This post is sponsored by Forte Chocolates.

One of the best things about my time abroad in Paris was exploring the many Parisian food wonders.  A favorite was their chocolat chaud.  This wasn't just hot chocolate as known in the States but more like a thick melted chocolate drink. It was marvelous and such an indulgence. 

Forte's motto is "Celebrate Life Through Chocolate". I cannot think of a better way to celebrate life than with a mug full of this Parisian Drinking Chocolate.

This recipe may be small but a mug of this stuff really packs a punch. You steam whole milk on the stove top. Once it is piping hot, remove the pot and add chocolate, vanilla, espresso powder, and a touch of sea salt.

Slowly stir in all of the wonderful flavors.  The milk will thicken and turn into a rich chocolate treat. 

Thanks to Forte Chocolates for sponsoring this post and providing the different chocolates from their new Gusto line. The white chocolate balsamic vinaigrette is so versatile for use in both sweet and savory dishes.
