Three Ingredients are All You Need for Delicious Home Made Hot Chocolate

Happy Holidays! It's getting cold out so I wanted to put up some pleasing-to-the-palate drink recipes that will warm you up and serve a house full of guests easily! So, today I bring you hot chocolate recipes that work for everyone's taste buds!! We are going to try the simplest hot chocolate recipe three different ways: White, Milk, and Dark Chocolate I think you will find they have three astoundingly different tastes to them!

white chocolate chips

Basic Hot Chocolate makes 1-2 cups
Milk: 3 oz
Chocolate[white, milk, or dark]: 1.5 oz
Hot Water: as needed to fill glass
 
Directions:
1. Boil milk
2. Pour over chocolate
3. Fill cup to top with hot water
 
The white hot chocolate is sweeter than a normal hot chocolate [just like white chocolate is much sweeter than milk or dark]. It is something that I think younger children would enjoy.  It's not too rich and is white in color so it tastes like a sweet milk drink and looks like one too. It makes for a very delicious snack!

The milk chocolate makes hot cocoa that I find to be very mild, sweet and chocolatey. It is basically the average hot cocoa that everyone is used to- so its good for a traditional style drink!
 

dark chocolate chips

 
The dark chocolate cocoa makes for a very rich flavor that is perfect for a chocolate lover.   If you want a really deep robust chocolate flavor that is not overly sweet, then try the dark chocolate! BONUS if you wanted to add some liquer to your cocoa- kahlua, bailey's, etc...[over 21! only]  this is your dirnk! A sweeter liquer would make the other two chocolates a bit too sweet.
