How To Serve This Best Italian Hot Chocolate 

Remember, this drink is hot! Use your coffee mugs, or heat-proof mugs when serving up a cup of Cioccolato Caldo.

Try to add some extra flavor, you can try peppermint extract when making your hot chocolate for a cooling holiday flavor, or a teaspoon of pure vanilla extract or cinnamon.

Because of the thickness of this hot chocolate, it also goes very well as churros dipping sauce, or anything such as donuts, plain cake, or bread.
