It’s not really winter yet but it’s getting colder. You feel like wearing your woolly socks, sitting in front of a crackling fireplace, and nursing a piping hot drink in your hands.

Homemade Hot Chocolate Recipe Ingredients for 2:
- 1 measuring cup / 200 ml of milk
- 10 pieces of chocolate from a chocolate bar (containing 65% cocoa)
- 2 serving cups
- A microwave oven
Drop 5 pieces of chocolate into each serving cup.
Then pour 100 ml of milk into each cup.
Put each serving cup into the microwave for 1 minute at maximum power to melt the chocolate. Note: the milk should not boil.
Take the cup out of the microwave, stir with a teaspoon…done!
Tip: Take a sip, and add a teaspoon of table sugar if needed. You can pair the hot chocolate with cookies if you like.
I know, I said I made two cups and you can only see one in the picture. My wife had already drunk the other cup when I took this picture. You have to act fast when it comes to drinking chocolate.
