How To Make Stove Top Hot Chocolate

There is nothing better than a big cup of hot chocolate after a long day of playing in the snow. Whether you were hitting the slopes or building snowmen, warming up with a creamy cup of hot chocolate is the perfect ending. Sure, adding hot water to a mix will do the trick, but nothing can beat the decadence of real hot chocolate. You can use cocoa powder to make a dry mix or use solid chocolate to elevate your taste buds to a whole new level. Grate or finely chop your choice of chocolate into a sauce pan over low heat and add in milk. It’s sure to be the richest, creamiest hot cocoa you’ve ever had. In this video, Chef Mark gives an online cooking lesson on how to cook the best hot chocolate. For more great cooking demonstration videos, subscribe to the LearnToCookOnline YouTube channel.
