This homemade hot chocolate it’s creamy, chocolatey, and easy to make. I added a short video (My little one enjoyed making it) and a written recipe. I hope you enjoy it.


3-4 cups milk (your choice)

1 tsp instant coffee (optional)

Pinch of salt

¼ cup unsweetened cocoa powder

3 tbsp granulated sugar

½ cup bittersweet or semisweet or chopped chocolate bar or chocolate chips

Fresh whipped cream or halal marshmallow (optional)


Place the milk, coffee, cocoa powder, sugar, and a pinch of salt in a small saucepan. Heat over medium-low heat until warm (but not boiling), and frequently whisk

Add the chopped chocolate and constantly whisk until the chocolate melts and you get smooth, rich chocolaty milk.

Serve immediately and top them with whipped cream or marshmallows.
