This delicious Homemade Hot Chocolate recipe is so easy to make! Get the secret that makes this Homemade Hot Chocolate so rich and creamy!
If there’s one thing I loved as a child, it was hot chocolate. Little did I know at the time that I wasn’t experiencing good hot chocolate. My mom was always conscience of our sugar intake and having hot chocolate was a special treat. I didn’t think twice when she’d open a packet, pour half in a cup of hot water, stir and serve.
As I’ve grown, so have my tastes and that half pack of watered down mix just isn’t enough. If you’re going to do something, do it right, right? This creamy homemade hot chocolate recipe takes less than 10 minutes to make and is so dreamy! And hey, it’s another way to squeeze in a little calcium.
This Homemade Hot Chocolate is made with chocolate melting wafers, but you can use your favorite chocolate chips including milk chocolate chips, semi-sweet chocolate chips and dark chocolate chips.
To make it really rich and creamy, I use sweetened condensed milk. I can’t wait to hear what you think!
We frequently make this in fall and winter because it’s so quick and easy and so good!
How to Make Homemade Hot Chocolate:
