Before the boom of artisanal bean-to-bar Filipino chocolates, the only name in the game was Ricoa. And as kids, we were all too familiar with their two ready-to-eat chocolates: Flat Tops and Curly Tops. There was always a debate as to which one was better, but the answer really depends on personal preference. This hot chocolate recipe uses Curly Tops because it has a deep chocolate flavor and smooth mouthfeel, working well as melted chocolate.

2 cups milk

2 tbsp cocoa powder

2 tbsp granulated sugar

⅛ tsp vanilla extract

8 pieces Curly Tops, crumbled

1

Combine milk, cocoa powder, sugar, and vanilla in a small saucepan over medium-low heat. Heat until warm but not boiling, whisking frequently to dissolve the cocoa and sugar.

2

Add crumbled Curly Tops. Whisk until melted and incorporated.

3

Turn off the heat and divide the hot chocolate between two mugs. Enjoy hot.
