Directions

Notes

Special equipment: a pastry bag

Step 1

Put the melted chocolate into a pastry bag and snip off a tiny hole at the tip. Pipe lacy chocolate designs–just larger than the tea cups you’re using–onto a baking mat or piece of parchment paper. Allow to set completely.

Step 2

Combine the milk and half-and-half in a small saucepan. Warm over medium-low heat, then stir in the bittersweet and semisweet chocolate chips, sugar and vanilla, heating until melted and combined. Transfer the mixture to a teapot.

Step 3

To serve: place a lacy chocolate piece over each tea cup and pour over the hot chocolate. When the chocolate has melted into the cup, top with the whipped cream and enjoy.
