This three-ingredient hot chocolate is something my husband has been making since he was ten years old. It’s creamy, slightly sweet, and perfectly chocolaty. He serves it with a bit of whipped cream and a few mini chocolate chips sprinkled on top. Feel free to adapt the recipe to make it sweeter, or more/less chocolaty, and you can make it a little more gourmet by adding a touch of vanilla extract. This drink needs to be tasted while you make it so you will get it just the way you like it. My kids love this hot chocolate and always look forward to their dad making it for them.
How to Make Homemade Hot Chocolate
Simmer the milk in a saucepan over low heat until very warm. Side Note: Do not let the milk come to a boil!
Add the sugar and chocolate to the warm milk; whisk until well combined. Taste and add more sugar or chocolate, to taste, if needed. Serve immediately topped with whipped cream and mini chocolate chips. Enjoy.
