How do I make hot chocolate?

I was just wondering how I would make hot chocolate.
could I make it out of home supplies such as chocolate bars or chocolate spread?
and would it taste nice if I made it?
many thanks, kelsey.

  1. 2/3 c sugar + 1/3 c cocoa powder, mix a couple Tbs of the powder with hot milk (any milk substitute will work too) to taste. You want your milk to be hot so it mixes well. It’s very good, way better than anything store bought!! 🙂

  2. It’s possible to make hot chocolate at home using regular opposed to drinking chocolate,
    -melt some chocolate in a bowl [glass or ceramic] placed in a pan of boiling water, [the water should be no higher then half way up the bowl to stop water mixing in with the chocolate as it melt].
    – as the chocolate melts stir it to reduce lumps.
    – once the chocolate is melted turn down the temperature on the stove and gradually add milk to the chocolate, stirring as you do so till it reaches the consistency you want, and the milk starts to froth.
    – turn off the gas, put it into a cup, drink!

  3. You gotta use good quality, high percent cocoa chocolate and sweeten it yourself
    1 Stirring constantly, melt about 35g chocolate with 7tsp milk in a bowl over just simmering water
    -at this point you can add sugar to taste
    2 When it’s all smooth, increase the temp to medium heat and add 120ml more milk and don’t stop whisking the mixture. do not allow to boil either
    3 (Optional) add the tiniest weeniest bit of salt to enhance the chocolate flavour and add any spices, liquors you like 🙂

    INGREDIENTS
    Basic Hot Chocolate

    4 cups of whole milk
    8 ounces of chocolate (60% cacao, preferably)
    3 teaspoons of powdered sugar
    1 teaspoon of vanilla extract
    1/8 teaspoon of salt
    METHOD
    1 Finely chop the chocolate into small pieces. The pieces have to be able to dissolve easily in the liquid.

    2 Place the milk into a small, thick-bottomed pot on low heat and bring to a low simmer. Whisk once in a while to ensure that the milk doesn’t stick to the bottom of the pan.

    2a If you plan to steep herbs or spices, add the herbs or spices to the milk, bring to a simmer then take off heat and allow to steep for 10 minutes. Strain the liquid then place back into the pot and return to a simmer.

    3 Add the vanilla, powdered sugar, salt, and chocolate and whisk vigorously until the chocolate has melted.

    3a If using liquors add them to the chocolate.

    4 Heat for another 4 minutes, constantly stirring.

    Serve. Add a dollop of whipped cream if you want.

    Thank you…………
