Homemade Hot Chocolate

"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."

    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.

    Very quick easy hot chocolate that is not overly sweet or calorie laden. Good everyday hot choc recipe.


I'm a happily married father of four. I love to cook for my family as much as I can. But is hard when you have a wife that cooks as much as mine. Some of you might know her as The Recipe Fairy. It is also hard for me being a law enforcement officer. But when I get the chance I enjoy myself for I am cooking for my love ones.
