1cupunsweetened almond milk or milk of choice (I like 2%)

1/2tablespoonpure maple syrupplus additional to taste
Tiny pinch of kosher salt or sea salt
1tablespoonchopped dark chocolate or chocolate chips
1/4teaspoonpure vanilla extract
Shaved dark chocolate or chocolate chipsfor serving
In a small saucepan, heat the milk until just simmering. Whisk in the cocoa powder, maple syrup, and salt. Add the chocolate chips and vanilla. Whisk and heat until the chocolate is melted and smoothly combined.
Taste and add more maple syrup if you'd like it sweeter. Pour into a mug, and top with extra chocolate as desired. For more variations, see the blog post above.
