Italian Hot Chocolate

 AJ (my bro) just returned from his trip from Milan, hey he didn't go there for a pleasure trip; but as a part of his studies which he is currently pursuing. So while we were catching up on the culture and the place, he insisted that I concoct this drink? Pudding? It's a thick, dense and a definite chocolate rush  - all in a cup.

From Milan With Love!!

[Serves - 4 cups]
Whole Milk - 1 cup, separated in 3/4 cup and 1/4 cup
Heavy Cream - 1 cup
Cornstarch - 1 1/2 teaspoons
Granulated Sugar - 4 tablespoons
Chocolate - 4 1/2 ounces high quality, finely chopped
Whipped Cream - a cup

Combine the 3/4 cup milk, cream and sugar in a saucepan. Heat until it starts to bubble around the edges. While the milk mixture is heating, whisk together the 1/4 milk and the cornstarch till smooth. Once the milk mixture starts to bubble around the edges, add the milk and cornstarch mixture. Whisk until it's heated through. Add the chocolate and whisk together, till hot and thick enough to coat a spoon. Pour into mugs and serve with whipped cream if desired.
