Homemade Hot Chocolate

Classic Hot Chocolate
Yield: 4 cups, 2-4 servings
Prep time: 5 minutes
Cook time: 5 minutes

       Winter time brings many joyous traditions that most of us look forward to all year around. Whether it is building a gingerbread house, decorating the Christmas tree, or our favorite here at RMR: Bundling up next to the fireplace on a snowy night with a big mug of homemade hot chocolate. Although the powdered stuff may be passable in a pinch, why not treat yourself and your loved ones with a beverage that perfectly emulates the season we all know and love?

4 oz Semi sweet chocolate chips
4 cups milk
3 Tbsp sugar
1 Tbsp cocoa powder
1/4 tsp instant espresso

1. Pour the milk into a small sauce pot and bring to just a simmer over medium heat.
2. Add the chocolate pieces to a microwave safe bowl and microwave on high in 30 second intervals. Stir between each cook time and microwave until chocolate is melted.
3. Stir the sugar, cocoa powder, and instant espresso into the melted chocolate.
4. Pour the chocolate mixture into the warm milk, whisk to combine.
Serve with a heaping dollop of whipped cream or our Peppermint Marshmallows
