There is something soothing about hot chocolate. For me it is peace in a cup. Now that I have had this recipe I am a tad picky about my hot chocolate peace. I have tweaked the recipe and am now using: 1/2 cup hot milk 1/2 of a 3.5 oz bar of Lindt or Scharffen Berger chocolate bar Mix till chocolate is melted. Enjoy. Best ever and so simple.
