Good for the cold mornings. Make sure you use a heavy pan. If you use a light one you may burn your chocolate. The heavier the pan the longer it will take.


  1. Combine the chocolate,sugar,cinnamon and a 1/2 cup of the milk in a small but heavy sauce pan.
  2. Whisk constantly over a medium-low heat until the chocolate mixture melts and forms a smooth paste.
  3. Add the remaining milk and whisk until warmed through.
  4. Serve immediately.

Great recipe and so easy. The flavor was so much more flavorful and richer than the store bought packets. I used 1.5 ounces semi-sweet chocolate chips and 1.5 ounces Andes chocolate mint pieces. Because I was going for a minty taste, I omitted the cinnamon. This was fantastic. Can't wait to try it again with the cinnamon.

This was good but a little too bitter for my taste (I used Ghirardelli 60% bittersweet chocolate). I'm going to try it again with semi-sweet chocolate and/or more sugar. Made with skim milk. I will be passing this on to my dad as he loves hot chocolate and I think he would really enjoy this. Thanks for the recipe!

Couldn't have been easier or tastier! I made this per BF's request for "real" hot chocolate, and he was just thrilled with it. Said it was like drinking a melted chocolate bar. I wound up using 1 1/2 cups of half and half and a half cup of skim milk.
