Chocolate Soup
Silky Smooth Chocolate Soup Recipe

Somewhere between hot chocolate and warm chocolate pudding, my Chocolate Soup recipe is a perfectly sweet bowl of the chocolate flavor you crave.

Course: Dessert
Cuisine: American
Author: Gemma Stafford
  • 3 cups (24floz/675ml) full-fat milk
  • 1 cup (8floz/225ml) heavy cream
  • 2 cups (12oz/340g) chopped bittersweet chocolate
  • 3 tablespoons cornstarch
  • 2 tablespoons water
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
  • Whipped cream for serving
  • Grated chocolate for serving (optional)
  1. In a medium saucepan, combine the milk and cream and bring to a simmer over medium heat.
  2. Reduce the heat to low, add the chocolate and whisk until the chocolate starts to melt.
  3. Meanwhile, in a small bowl, mix the cornstarch and the water together to form a runny paste. This will be stiff at first, but keep mixing until combined and smooth.
  4. When the chocolate mixture comes to a simmer, add the cornstarch paste and cook, whisking continuously, for 1 minute, until the soup is thick and smooth.
  5. Reduce the heat to very low and simmer for 2-3 minutes to cook out the raw taste of the cornstarch.
  6. Turn off the heat and whisk in the salt and vanilla. Pass the soup through a sieve for a smooth silky result.
  7. Divide the soup among six serving bowls and garnish with some freshly whipped cream and grated chocolate if you'd like. Enjoy warm.
