My go to Christmas movie is The Polar Express, and specifically, the hot chocolate scene on the train. When I was little, I would imagine that their hot chocolate just tasted like melted chocolate, which, is pretty much what hot chocolate is.
After coming home cold and wet from the Christmas Parade, I thought I would whip up a batch to make the oncoming pneumonia more enjoyable.
You will need;
1 cup of chocolate chips (I used milk chocolate)
3 tbsp of water
4 cups of milk
Put your chocolate chips and water in a saucepan over low to medium heat (We have a gas range, so I put everything on low)
Melt everything together then add your milk one cup at a time stirring constantly
Once all mixed, continue stirring over the heat for another three minutes
Serve with whipped cream or marshmallows
Now, are you a hot chocolate packet with milk or water kind of gal? Me personally? Milk all the way!
