Hot Chocolate – Easy Hot Chocolate Recipe

March 1, 2016 Drinks  8 comments

Hot Chocolate is a simple and delicious hot drink for all chocolate lovers. Rather than getting those store bought ready mixes or the restaurant ones, this homemade Hot Chocolate is very easy, yummy and economical too. I have tasted Hot Chocolate in many places, but I would say the best one was at my hubby’s office  I have been hunting for the best recipe for a very long time and tried this one from a cook book that I had borrowed from the library. It is just creamy, yummy and chocolatey!!

Now to the recipe…



[Preparation Time-5 mins : Cooking Time- 10 mins]

Ingredients (SINGLE SERVING):

  • Milk – 200 ml
  • Fresh Cream – 2 tbsp
  • Milk Chocolate Chips – 1 tbsp
  • Sugar – 1 tbsp (see tips)
  • Cocoa powder – 1 tsp





  • Take milk and cream in a sauce pan. Add the chocolate chips, cocoa powder, sugar (not in pic – see tips) and start heating it in low-medium flame.

  • Stir well with a whisk, so that there are no lumps. The chocolate chips will melt and blend well with the milk. Once it comes to a boil and is frothy, switch off the flame.

Thats it!! Piping Hot Chocolate is ready!!

Transfer to a cup and enjoy!!



  1. U can use whole milk or skimmed milk. I have used whole milk.
  2. Adding cream gives a thick and creamy texture.
  3. Initially I did not add any sugar as I thought it would be sweet enough. But later tasted and added a tbsp of sugar. U can adjust the amount according to your preference.
  4. Instead of chocolate chips u can use any chocolate bar, be it milk chocolate or dark chocolate.
  5. U can top the Hot Chocolate with some whipped cream and chocolate shavings.
  6. Use good quality cocoa powder and chocolate. It plays a major role in the Hot Chocolate.
  7. U can do the same recipe in a microwave. If doing, mix all the ingredients and microwave for a minute or 2 depending upon your microwave.
