Hot Chocolate From Scratch
One day my son was asking me to make some hot chocolate for him. Usually what i do is get some instant hot chocolate mix and pour some hot water and give it to him. This time i was out of the instant mix and he was screaming that he wants hot chocolate now.I was too lazy to go to the store and get the mix so thought will try
some thing and see if he like it or not .I made some hot chocolate with the ingredients that i had at home and it turned out great also my son enjoyed it. Little did i know i could also be creative sometimes:) Here is the recipe.
Whole Milk - 1 cup [ or use 3/4cup whole milk + 1/4 cup heavy cream for
richer hot chocolate]
Semisweet Chocolate chips - 1/2cup [I prefer guittar brand]
Sugar - 3 tbs
In a pan add the milk and bring it to boiling stage.Remove from stove
and add the chocolate,sugar and mix until the chocolate is melted and
sugar is dissolved.You can increase the milk if you like your hot chocolate thinner and lighter.
Put a dollop of whipped cream and sprinkle chocolate or cocoa powder .
Enjoy hot and cold.
