This is a classic homemade old-fashioned hot chocolate, a delicious drink for fall or winter.
Our family's traditional topping has always been a big spoonful of Marshmallow Creme or fluff, but mini marshmallows or whipped cream would be delicious as well.
- 2 ounces (2 squares) unsweetened chocolate
- 1/3 cup sugar
- 4 cups milk
- pinch salt
- 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
- Marshmallow Creme, Fluff. or whipped cream, optional
Place chocolate, sugar, milk, and salt in a 2-quart saucepan over medium-low heat. Heat, stirring, until chocolate melts and mixture is well blended.
Add vanilla; pour into mugs and top with a spoonful of marshmallow or whipped cream, if desired.
