For Each Latte
1.5ounceshigh quality bittersweet chocolateI used Scharrfenberger, but Ghirardelli or Lindt would be good too
1/2cupstrong hot coffee
2tablespoonsBailey's Irish Cream
additional chocolate shavings
Use a microplane grater to finely grate the chocolate. Very carefully, transfer the chocolate shavings to a bowl (be careful - they are so light, they will become airborne and dust your kitchen with particles if you make any sudden movements -- and DON'T SNEEZE).
In a small saucepan, heat the milk over medium heat until just hot, but not boiling. Remove from heat and whisk the chocolate shavings into the hot milk until they dissolve. Add the hot coffee, sugar and Bailey's. Whisk until well combined and pour into individual mugs.
Top with a little whipped cream and chocolate shavings if desired.
