This is a classic comfort drink whose fans have no age bar. From kids to oldies, everyone loves to have this on a cold winter evening. I feel this 'Hot Chocolate' is synonyms with a warm hug.

Recipe Ingredients

  • Chocolate compound - 40 to 50 gms (3 tbsp approx)
  • Sugar 2 tbsp (optional)
  • Milk - 1 cup (200 ml)
  • Vanilla extract - 1/4 tsp (Optional)
  • Marshmallows - As many as desired

Recipe Preparation

  1. Chop the chocolate into bits. The finer you chop, the quicker the chocolate will melt.
  2. Add this in a microwave safe mug and microwave it for 30 seconds. Stir and microwave again for 30 seconds.
  3. Add in some milk and mix it well. Microwave it again. Stir well. Add the rest of the milk and stir it for a minute. Add the sugar as per liking, mix and microwave it one last time (Be careful as it may boil).
  4. Add vanilla extract if using any. Finally add some marshmallows, chocolate shavings and sip away!
  5. Try additional toppings or flavors like whipped cream, chocolate syrup, cinnamon and mint for garnish.
My Tip: For a mug of creamy hot chocolate use one tablespoon of heavy cream. You can also add sweetened condensed milk to the mug for a sweeter, thicker and creamier hot chocolate.
