How to make the perfect cup of homemade hot chocolate with only two ingredients. This recipe is so easy and delicious, you'll never buy a mix again!
For the Hot Chocolate:
— any kind you like (I usually use skim, but 2% or whole will give the hot chocolate more body; almond milk, soy milk, or non-dairy milks can be used well)
semi-sweet chocolate chips
— or chopped dark chocolate (I like a 65% or greater dark chocolate)
Ideas to Customize:
— highly recommended for all flavor combinations
Extracts: 1/4 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
— or 1-2 drops pure peppermint extract
— will enhance the chocolate flavor
— dark rum, or peppermint schnapps
For topping: Whipped cream,
— marshmallows, caramel, or hot fudge
In a small saucepan, heat the milk over medium high heat until steaming and small bubbles form around the edge (do not let the milk boil!). Add the chocolate chips and let melt, stirring occasionally, then whisk until smooth.
Whisk in any desired mix-ins. Serve hot with desired toppings.
