Just what I was looking for! I made an individual portion by quartering the recipe to: 1 cup milk (I used 1%), 1 Tbsp cocoa powder, 2 Tbsp sugar, and 1 oz chocolate. Put it all in a mug, microwaved for one minute, stirred with a fork, and microwaved for another minute. Easy and delicious.

I've been taste testing hot chocolates and this one is excellent! I used 2% milk and added 1tbsp cornstarch to give it thickness and 2tsp of vanilla extract to add even more chocolate richness. Just wonderful.
