I love a good mug of hot chocolate. Once you try this recipe, you won’t be using packets where you add hot water. This hot chocolate is made with milk and half and half and a good chocolate candy bar.
1/2 cup whole milk
1 1/2 cups half and half
2 ounces chocolate candy bar, I used Lindt Milk Chocolate (you chose your favorite)
1 Tablespoon sugar, optional
Whip cream, optional
Chocolate curls optional
In a saucepan, heat milk, heavy cream and sugar if you are using it over medium heat. Add chocolate, I broke my candy bar into pieces. Stir frequently. Once chocolate is melted and it’s heated enough to your desire (do not boil), pour into mug. Top with whip cream and chocolate curls if you wish. You will not believe the difference between homemade hot chocolate and dry package mix hot chocolate, there is no comparison. Enjoy!
