    • 5 cups milk
    • 3 tablespoons flour
    • 4 ounces semisweet chocolate, chopped fine
    • 2 tablespoons sugar

      In a small bowl, stir 1/2 cup milk and the flour until smooth.
    2. 2
      In a saucepan bring 4 1/2 cups milk to a simmer over medium heat. Place chocolate in a small bowl, and ladle 1 cup of the simmering milk over the chocolate and whisk to dissolve it. Stir the dissolved chocolate into the simmering milk.

      Yummy!! I used this recipe for a family chocolate Iron Chef battle. I had soup...this was thick and rich and very easy to make. I used Hawaiian bread cut in cubes to dip into the soup. Everyone loved it!

      Excellent! Excellent! This deserves a standing ovation! The soup comes out creamy and wonderful. As I don't have a scale, I guessed at how much chocolate to add. I ended up adding about 3/4 cup of chopped up chocolate. It wasn't overpowering and it didn't make it too sweet. I failed to watch it close enough, so I got a few lumps from it sticking to the bottom. I also used a non-stick pot for this. I won't do that again. It seemed to stick even more-so. The lumps even tasted good to me though. Other than my errors, this recipe was perfect! We used Cornmeal Cookies #71241 to dunk in the soup. Divine!
