Learn how to make hot chocolate using chocolate chips. It only needs three additional ingredients to make it super delicious!
Hot chocolate made with real chocolate can’t be beat! You can use whatever kind of chocolate chips you like. I prefer dark chocolate so I go with those. If you like a sweeter creamier hot chocolate, then try milk chocolate chips.
If you don’t have chocolate chips, use baking chocolate and finely chop it.
All you do to make this hot chocolate is to pour milk into a mug and then microwave it until very hot. Scoop in the chocolate chips and some sugar. Stir until it’s smooth. Drink!
- 1 cup milk
- 2 Tbsp. chocolate chips
- 1 tsp. granulated sugar
- pinch of salt
- In mug, add milk and heat in microwave until hot but not boiling ( 1 minute to 1 minute 30 seconds).
- Add chocolate chips and sugar to the mug. Stir together until the chocolate is melted and very well mixed. Add a pinch of salt and stir.
