Wow! We’re nearing the end of the series! It’s been a lot of fun for us, and I hope for you, too!

As you probably know, I love baking. So today, I have a recipe to show you for some easy hot chocolate! (Without hot chocolate mix 😉 , so if you don’t have any on hand, this recipe is for you!)

Let’s begin!

You will need…

Ingredients:

  • About 2 Tablespoons of Chocolate chips (or chopped up chocolate)
  • About a cup of milk (Almond milk works too!)
  • Optional: Sugar
  • Optional topping ideas: Marshmallows, Whipped cream, crushed candy cane

Note: You don’t need to measure the milk exactly, and the chocolate can be approximate, too.

First, pour the milk into your mug.

Then stick it in the microwave and heat it up for one minute.

Put your two tablespoons of chocolate chips into your mug. Be careful, sometimes the milk splatters when you drop them in.

Now stir it all up until your chocolate chips are melted into the milk!

And you have your hot chocolate! Yum! A few notes: 1) There may be some little chocolate bits still floating around that don’t dissolve; 2) I like to microwave the hot chocolate another 30 seconds to try and get the chocolate to melt further; 3) You may add in some sugar if you want it sweeter.

Also feel free to add toppings! I chose whipped cream and crushed candy cane!
