Best hot chocolate recipe ever!!!

best hot chocolate

You’ll need

  • 2 cups whole milk
  • 2 tbsp sugar *
  • 4 oz bittersweet or milk chocolate chopped (just under 1 cup measured)
  • splash of vanilla extract
  • whipped cream
  • marshmallows


  • Combine milk and sugar in a small saucepan and place on the stove over medium heat.
  • While the milk is heating place the chopped chocolate in the microwave and heat for 30 seconds. Take the chocolate out and stir it. Return to microwave and heat for another thirty seconds, remove and stir. Continue to heat and stir the chocolate in 30 second intervals until just melted.
  • When the milk reaches the scalding point (180 degrees F, with bubbles on the side), turn off the heat and add the melted chocolate, whisking to combine. Add the vanilla extract now, if desired. Top with whipped cream or marshmallows if using, and enjoy!

Chef’s Tips

  1. Try adding the sugar at the end.  You may need more or less depending on the level of sweetness you prefer and the type of chocolate you use.
  2. Don’t want to risk burning the chocolate in the microwave? You can also melt the chocolate in a bain-marie (a hot water bath). Over a small pot with a little water which has been brought to the boil, place a glass bowl or stainless steel one (with rounded edges) into which your chocolate has been placed.  The heat from the boiling water will melt the chocolate.  Don’t overfill the pot with water – water droplets formed via condensation from the steam could splash into your chocolate and ruin it.
