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
- 1/2 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
- 1/2 tsp 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!
