Hot Chocolate

  • 1 ½ cups whole milk
  • 2 ounces semisweet or bittersweet chocolate, chopped
  • 4 teaspoons packed brown sugar
  • 2 teaspoons cocoa powder
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • Marshmallows or freshly whipped cream for topping

In a saucepan, combine milk, chocolate, sugar, cocoa powder, and salt. Heat over medium, whisking often, until chocolate melts and mixture is smooth. Divide hot chocolate between two mugs and serve with marshmallows or a dollop of whipped cream. Serve immediately.

Note: For more sweetness use the semisweet chocolate, for less sweetness use the bittersweet.
