Italian Style Hot Chocolate or Cioccolata Calda is nothing like American style hot chocolate. Think of it like chocolate soup, Italian Style Hot Chocolate is thick, creamy, and much richer! Enjoyed during the cooler months and sometimes even eaten with a spoon, this can be served as a beverage or dessert.
