  1. Using a serrated knife, finely chop the chocolate into 1/4-inch pieces.

  4. Immediately pour the boiling cream over the chopped chocolate. Tap the bowl on the counter to settle the chocolate into the cream, then let it sit for 1 minute. Using a rubber spatula, slowly stir in a circular motion, starting from the center of the bowl and working out to the sides. Be careful not to add too much air to the ganache. Stir until all the chocolate is melted, about 2 minutes. It may look done after 1 minute of stirring, but keep going to be sure it’s emulsified. 
  5. Bring the milk and cream to a boil in a small saucepan over medium heat. Add the cocoa powder and whisk or use blender to dissolve.Remove from heat and add the ganache. Let sit for 1 minute, then stir until well combined, about 4 minutes. Stir in the vanilla. 
  6. Serve the hot chocolate right away. Top with whipped cream and chocolate shavings. Enhance this hot chocolate with peppermint or cinnamon. Serve with holiday cookies.
