Tips for Making Hot Chocolate from Scratch

  • The milk should be extremely warm, but not boiling. Boiled milk will start to coagulate and become curdled milk.
  • Stir constantly once chocolate is added so it doesn’t stick to the bottom of the pan.
  • Add whipped topping and extra chopped chocolate for toppings
