The easiest hot chocolate that uses pure chocolate and it only calls for three ingredients!
Hot chocolate has been my go-to drink for as long as I can remember. It's been my savior during these chilly, rainy and now SNOWY days that we've been having here lately in NJ. I have it almost every single day and thought it was about time I share my favorite recipe with you! I do have another recipe on my site for hot chocolate (don't mind the pictures, I was a newbie!) hat's delicious as well but it uses cocoa powder while this one uses real chocolate. This one is the besssst and is ridiculously easy to make. And the best part is that it requires only THREE ingredients and ten minutes of your time!
Real Hot Chocolate
- 2 cups whole milk
- ½ cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
- ½ teaspoon vanilla extract
- garnish with homemade whipped cream or marshmallows
- Heat milk on medium heat until very hot, but not boiling. Stir in chocolate chips and vanilla. Start whisking rapidly until all chocolate is melted. (By whisking rapidly, this prevents a skin forming on the hot chocolate from the milk getting too hot.) Once everything is smooth, pour into glasses and enjoy!
I've never made homemade hot cocoa, but I need to start! And I need to add a ton of marshmallows too! Yum!
Same! I love a massive amount of marshmallows! 🙂

yummy! I have seen a couple of recipes for homemade hot cocoa but have never tried it out before. I will now! I love hot cocoa during the colder months with marshmallows! They are so good and it is so satisfying on a cold winter day! Thank you so much for sharing this 🙂 I'm about to go make one right now!
Hope you loved it!!

I don't like hot drinks - hot chocolate included but I really wish I did because it always looks so sweet with all the marshmallows. It's great that hot chocolate is you thing and you want it to taste just right. Thanks for sharing the recipe, I'll have to make this for my little boy, I know he's at least love all the marshmallows 🙂
Definitely. My little guy's favorite part is the marshmallows too. 🙂
