Homemade Hot Chocolate

It is hard to resist sipping a cuppa hot chocolate especially on a rainy day. Making your own homemade hot chocolate is really one of the simplest yet therapeutic way to unwind. You don’t even have to use any fancy cocoa powder for this recipe. Just some good plain ol’ chocolate bars in your cupboard (we always have some readily available in our pantry) or from the grocery store.
 

Ingredients:
1 cup (250 ml) fresh milk
2 oz. (60 g) bittersweet chocolate – chopped (or semi-sweet or milk chocolate)
1 tbsp granulated sugar (optional if using milk chocolate)
¼ tsp vanilla extract

Serves 2

The line up.

 

In a saucepan on a medium heat, add the milk and sugar and heat gently until you see tiny bubbles on the side. Do not overheat or boil the milk as your hot chocolate will become grainy.

Reduce the sugar amount if you are using sweeter chocolate.

 

While the milk is warming up, melt the chopped chocolate in a microwave (in 30 secs interval) until just melted.
