Are you ready for the best hot chocolate you’ll ever taste? This recipe is sumptuously rich, velvety smooth, and perfect for warming up throughout the winter season.

Unlike its close cousin hot cocoa, which is made from only cocoa powder, chocolate is an essential ingredient for hot chocolate. I prefer a semi-sweet or dark chocolate which has a distinctly rich flavor that tastes amazing when whisked with milk. And speaking of milk, you can make this dairy or dairy-free! So choose your favorite milk – they all work great.
