What is hot chocolate made of?
I make homemade hot chocolate from scratch out of four simple ingredients – whole milk, organic cocoa powder, sugar in the raw, and vanilla extract.
How to enhance the chocolate flavor?
If you’d like to have extra chocolate flavor, melt in 1/4 cup semi-sweet chocolate chip during the boiling process.
