Homemade Drinking Chocolate


  • Also known as Homemade Liquid Neutronium...
  • 1 can evaporated milk (12 oz or 350ml)
  • 3 heaping tbs cocoa (I used Penzey's)
  • 1/4 cup golden syrup (you could use light corn syrup)
  • 3 oz or 100 gms Ghiradelli semisweet baking chocolate, chopped
  • 1/4 cup or 60 ml heavy cream
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • dash of cinnamon
  • (optional) 2 tablespoons ginger syrup


  1. Place everything except the heavy cream together in a small saucepan, stirring occasionally, over medium low heat until the chocolate melts and the liquid is heated through. (Don't let it boil.) Add the heavy cream and heat another minute or so. Pour into individual small cups. Makes approximately 4 five ounce servings.
  2. This is wicked. I added the ginger syrup because I like chocolate and ginger, but you can certainly leave it out.
