This French Silk Hot Chocolate is so rich and creamy!  Once you make this you will never go back to the powdered chocolate that is sold in the stores.  Real chocolate and real cream.  Then add the milk.  It is sure to please your guests and they will ask for seconds.  It is great for any special occasion, but we drink it every Christmas morning.  Make it the night before and in the morning you will only need to warm the milk.  It might take a few minutes, but it is time well spent.  It is truly a party drink, but start your new traditions today and make some amazing French Silk Hot Chocolate.  You might even want to add some Ready Whip and a candy cane, or just drink it plain.  However you drink it, it is so good, you will love it.
