  • 2 cups Milk I used 2 % milk
  • 2 oz Semi sweet chocolate or chips
  • 2 tbsp Cocoa powder
  • 4 tbsp Sugar more or less as per your taste
  • ¼ tsp Salt
  • Whipped cream optional


  • Add about a cup of milk in a sauce pan and add the chocolate chips and cocoa powder. Heat it gently and keep stirring to melt the chocolate.
  • Add sugar, salt and the rest of the milk and heat it until the desired temperature is reached. I only heated it mildly as my kids were too impatient to wait for it to cool. If I was making it for us, I would have let it come to the boiling point and then served.
  • Top with whipped cream and serve!
