2. Iced Hot Chocolate

If you are not a fan of hot beverages, that does not mean you have to miss out on the magic that is hot chocolate. For this, you will first need to melt your favorite chocolate; it can either be milk or semi-sweet or dark. Once it is done, you mix in espresso powder, cocoa mix, and powdered sugar until it comes together.

Once that mixture is ready, a bit lumpy, and cooled off, take it to the blender! In the blender, add cold milk and ice, and voila, your iced chocolate is ready to devour.

3. Good Ol’ Hot Chocolate

To make a traditional hot chocolate all by scratch is incredibly easy, and it’s also the best kind. You need good quality cocoa powder, corn starch, milk, a pinch of salt, and a bit of sugar. Hershey’s cocoa powder is the king of cocoa powders, so if you can get your hands on it, your hot chocolate will become supreme.

You add all the ingredients to the milk, but the trick is to use thrice as much as the milk you need for one cup. That way, you let the concoction boil until it becomes thicker and more robust. By the time you’re left with 1 cup, your hot chocolate is as delicious as anything can be.

The Toppings To Keep On Hand

Anyone who loves hot chocolate knows that the drink is what it is because of its toppings. You can keep whipped cream with you, some good quality marshmallows that won’t become soggy, sprinkles, edible glitters, nuts, and chocolate shavings!
