Homemade Hot Chocolate


Whip up a cup of cozy hot chocolate in minutes with this easy recipe! A few years ago during a snow day, I discovered that I’d run out of powdered hot cocoa mix. However, I did have chocolate on hand and found that I preferred this version to the powder. It’s rich and chocolatey and perfect for a cold day. 


1 cup chocolate chips or 1 cup chocolate bar, broken into pieces*
2 cups milk

Slowly heat the chocolate in a small saucepan. In another pot, heat the milk till hot to the touch. Blend the two ingredients and serve. 

Add Marshmallows

*If you don’t have chocolate chips or a bar, you may use 2 tablespoons of Baker’s chocolate. Add about 1 tablespoon of sugar, or to taste.
