What's your Take?

Few people know the difference between hot cocoa and hot chocolate: Hot cocoa is made with a powdered form of chocolate that contains no cocoa butter. Hot chocolate, the richer chocolate drink, is made with cocoa-buttery chocolate. But everyone knows the best hot chocolate is homemade.

What you'll need

  • 1/2 cup water
  • 2 oz. semisweet chocolate
  • 3 cups whole milk
  • Dash of salt
Notes:

- Add a dash of cinnamon to create Mexican hot chocolate or a smattering of chocolate chips for a double chocolate drink. - To make mint hot chocolate, substitute about 1/2 cup mint chocolate chips for the semisweet chocolate

How to make it

  1. To make hot chocolate, combine the water and semisweet chocolate in a medium-size saucepan.

  2. Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly, until the chocolate is melted.

  3. Bring the mixture to a boil for 2 minutes, then reduce the heat to low.

  4. Stir in 3 cups of milk--whole milk tastes best but use low-fat milk if you prefer-- and a dash of salt.

  5. Warm the mixture for 5 to 7 minutes or until it is heated through. Makes 4 servings.
