Easy Hot Chocolate Recipe

3-Ingredient Hot Chocolate in 3 Minutes

While there's always a spot in my heart for hot cocoa mix or Nutella hot chocolate, my favorite hot chocolate is made using this method, involving warm milk and high-quality chocolate.

The peskiest problem most people face when making homemade hot chocolate is emulsifying (blending) the chocolate and the milk. Forget whisks or blenders — the only way to get the job done is to shake the warm milk and chocolate together in a mason jar until the mixture becomes frothy.

In literally three minutes, homemade hot chocolate is made! Feel free to stir in a little (1/4 teaspoon) vanilla or peppermint extract for an extra flavor kick. Top with marshmallows or with some whipped cream, and go cozy up by the fire.

Notes

If you don't have a microwave, heat the milk in a small saucepan over medium heat until scalded (small bubbles form on the edge of the pan). Meanwhile, put the chocolate in the mason jar. Pour the scalded milk over the chocolate, secure the mason jar with a lid, and shake.

Easy Hot Chocolate Recipe

Ingredients

  1. 1 cup milk of your choice
  2. 1/4 cup (2 ounces) chocolate of your choice
  3. Marshmallows, for garnishing

Directions

  1. In a mason jar, combine the milk and chocolate.
  2. Microwave for about 1 minute and 10 seconds, or until small bubbles form at the top of the milk and the chocolate appears slightly melty.
  3. Carefully remove (you may need to do so with a towel or oven mitt). Secure the lid on the mason jar, and shake until the chocolate dissolves into the milk and becomes frothy.
  4. Unscrew the cap, transfer to a mug, and top with the marshmallows.
