In celebration of National Hot Chocolate Day, here is a terrific Homemade Hot Chocolate Recipe: Ingredients
1/4 cup granulated sugar, (or add to desired sweetness)
1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
4 cups whole milk*
1/2 cup semisweet chocolate, (chips, chunks or shavings)
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
In a medium saucepan, whisk together the sugar and cocoa powder. Add milk, chocolate chips, and vanilla and whisk together.
Place over medium heat and bring it to a light boil while stirring constantly. Be sure the chocolate is fully melted and incorporated.
Set aside to cool to your desired temperature and serve with your favorite toppings.
* For a richer and creamier hot chocolate, replace 1 cup of milk with 1 cup of heavy cream or half and half.
