Cold Weather, Hot Chocolate

Jacques Torres Wicked Hot Chocolate:
Overall: ***1/2

The only reason that this didn't get a 4 star rating is that it was way too rich. The taste is very creamy and rich with chocolate. However, the addition of milk powder turns the resulting drink into sludge -- a rich, creamy delicious sludge, but one that is certainly not an everyday drink. The ingredients for this mix contain corn starch, which seems to be a major cause of the sludginess. I still like it, but it's too rich for everyday use.

Recipe used: 1 cup 2% milk with 1/2 cup mix.

Note: This might be one hot chocolate mix that I might try with water instead of milk.
