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!

Enjoy 🙂
