Ingredients
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 3 tablespoons cornstarch
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 4 cups whole milk , divided

  4. Place remaining 1/3 cup chocolate chips and the shortening in a small bowl and microwave on medium for about 1 minute, stirring once, until melted. Mix to combine.
  5. To serve, stir remaining 1 cup of milk into the soup; ladle into bowls and top with the croutons. Drizzle melted chocolate on top.
