This homemade hot chocolate recipe is one of my favorite things to drink on a cold day or anytime I am craving chocolate. What can I say, I am a chocolate lover.
It is bursting with rich chocolate flavor and is so creamy and incredibly easy to make. If I can do it, you can do it. Let’s get started!
Chop up the chocolate bars into small chunks, or if you are using chocolate chips skip this step.
Add the milk, heavy cream, and sugar to a medium pot and heat on the stovetop with medium heat. Stir occasionally until it reaches around 180 F/83 C. Don't bring it to a boil. It will be ready when you notice lots of little bubbles on the edges of the liquid.
Remove the hot liquid from the heat and dump in all of the chocolate. Allow it to sit for 3 to 4 minutes then stir it until the chocolate is completely melted and smooth and silky.
Reheat the hot chocolate as necessary if it cools down too much while melting the chocolate. Just place it back on the stovetop and heat it to the desired temp.
Pour it into mugs and add marshmallows, whipped cream, etc. Easy as that. Enjoy!
