Dairy free / Vegan whipped topping
Add the bittersweet chocolate into a small saucepan with 1/2 cup of almond milk.
Heat over medium heat, while stirring, until the chocolate melts. Keep stirring to prevent the chocolate from burning, until you have a smooth chocolate sauce.
Add the rest of the milk and sugar (if using), and lower the heat to medium low.
Mix with a whisk to combine. Continue to heat the chocolate milk over medium low heat, whisking frequently, until the chocolate milk thickens (about 5 minutes).
Heating this over low heat (without letting it boil) will reduce the milk to a thick, luscious consistency. Whisking frequently is important to prevent a milk skin from forming on top - if a milk skin does form, whisk it back into the milk.
Add the bourbon and stir to mix.
Serve in two small glasses or demitasse cups (it's a rich, robust drink, so a little goes a long way).
Serve with vegan marshmallows or dairy free whipping cream. Enjoy!
Note 1 - Make sure the bittersweet chocolate has no milk in the ingredients.
