Ingredients

Nutrition
  • 5 cups milk
  • 3 tablespoons flour
  • 4 ounces semisweet chocolate, chopped fine
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 tablespoon unsalted butter
  • 1 pinch ground cinnamon
  • 1 loaf brioche bread, torn in pieces (or panettone, or hard butter cookies)

Directions

  1. In a small bowl, stir 1/2 cup milk and the flour until smooth.
  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.
  3. Slowly add the flour mixture to milk in the saucepan, then stir in sugar, butter, and cinnamon, and return to the simmer. Cook, stirring until thick and smooth - about 5 minutes.
  4. Remove from heat, and let rest about a minute. Ladle soup into warm bowls, and pass the brioche, panettone, or cookies for dunking into the soup.
