Let’s start 2019 off with a bang. Let’s start 2019 off with Tahini Hot Chocolate. You guys, this stuff is pure liquid gold.

When I was little, I loved me some Swiss Miss. You know, those instant hot chocolate packets that you stir into hot milk. And always the kind with marshmallows in the packet. Always.

I mean in general I was a hot chocolate loving child. I think I liked to ski so much because breezing down the mountain was exhilarating both for the thrill of it but also because I was headed to get hot chocolate at the lodge below. One time on a road trip, I made my dad stop at a Lindt Chocolate outpost so I could try their famous thick hot chocolate.

While I loved my Swiss Miss so, I always felt a hint of disappointment as I sipped it. Why the heck was it so thin? Isn’t hot chocolate supposed to be thicccc? Like that one at Lindt. I wanted THAT.

And yes I’m like 20 years late to fulfilling my dream of creating a thick AF hot chocolate, I’ve officially done it, and it’s DAMN DELICIOUS, people!

This Tahini Hot Chocolate is pure liquid gold. It’s so thick that when you put it in the fridge it becomes solid. And the flavor is deep thanks to a combination of cinnamon, espresso powder, and vanilla extract.

And the tahini? It gives the hot chocolate a fantastic complexity. It makes things a hint nutty and extra thick.

Of course because this hot chocolate is so rich, it’s not meant to be served in a giant 20 ounce mug. I opted for these sweet 6 oz glasses, and wouldn’t recommend drinking more than that, as this stuff is hefty.

But like in the most amazing way. Like how it should be. 🙂

  • Author: Sarah | Broma Bakery
  • Yield: 4 servings 1x
Scale

Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 cups whole milk
  • 1/2 cup tahini
  • 23 tablespoons honey, to taste
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 teaspoon espresso powder
  • 1/8 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 8 ounces bittersweet chocolate, roughly chopped
  • whipped cream, for topping
  • sesame seeds, for topping

Instructions

  1. In a small saucepan over low heat, whisk together the milk, tahini, honey (starting with 2 tablespoons), vanilla extract, espresso powder, cinnamon, and salt. Heat until the milk is just shy of scalding, then remove from heat and add in chopped chocolate. 
  2. Allow to sit for 5 minutes before whisking together. At that point, the chocolate should be fully melted, but if it isn’t, place back on heat for 1 minute. If you like your hot chocolate sweeter, taste and add another tablespoon honey.  
  3. Pour tahini hot chocolate into small mugs. Top with whipped cream and sesame seeds and serve!

Have you tried it with almond, coconut, or oat milk? Does it work well?

You could definitely try it out with a nondairy milk! I feel like a thick coconut milk or creamy oat milk would work better to keep the thick consistency.

Let me know how it goes!

I got them on Amazon but I just checked and their no available there anymore!

You can find some similar ones on Etsy and other places. Just try googling “wire caddy with glasses”

Hope this helps!

What brand of tahini did you use !
Was it plain or chocolate flavoured?

I usually use Soom or Wholefoods brand and just the plain flavor–you’ll get plenty of chocolate from the chocolate bar! Hope this helps 🙂

Can you tell me what espresso powder is please? Is it some form of instant coffee…I’m assuming you don’t mean ground espresso beans.
Thank you for your reply x

Hey Suzanne! Instant coffee will do the trick too! We usually use this brand and you can find it at most grocery stores! Hope this helps 🙂
