Hershey's cocoa powder and sugar, add just enough hot milk to melt the chocolate, then add the remaining hot milk and stir. Top with real whipped cream.

I'm with you Barbara. Everything is better with whipped cream!

Oh gosh, that nutella combo is brilliant...I'm going to try it soon. Since we moved south of the border, I use Abuelita (made by Nestle, but what isn't?). It is a round disc of sweetened chocolate that you break up and melt in milk. There is is special wooden kitchen tool called a mollilo that you are supposed to whisk it with, but I don't have one, so I just use a whisk. Very very good and rich. "Abuelita" means "little grandmother". I think it is sold pretty widely in the US - look in the Mexican food section at your grocery. Hexagonal box, yellow and red, with a happy little granny on it....

Ooooh, Karen, I love Mexican Hot Chocolate. Abuelita is available at every store here and it's what I use for hot chocolate, too. So yummy. I think it has cinnamon in it.

I like a heaping teaspoonful of Dean's Beans organic fair trade cocoa and a pinch of sugar. Heat water and when it gets to stage where it's close to boiling I add a little to the cup and make a thick slurry to mix the cocoa in. Then top with water being sure to leave some room. I then add a splash of half and half just as you would to coffee. Usually that is followed by a splash of Kaluha and crowned with a dollop of whipped cream. What a great treat and not full of artificial crap like the packets which I used to drink.

BTW, Dean is a real good guy and local roaster with excellent coffee and cocoa products. He is one of the founders of the Fair Trade movement. Can't say enough good about his stuff, some of the best coffee I've had.

Mine is very simple. I take good quaility chocolate, like Varlhona if you know the brand.

I put a pan on the fire with milk to warm up. I break the chocolate in pieces and add them to the milk, stirring all the time so it melts completely. I vary the amount of chocolate ...for example my husband likes it very very thick...I do not like it like that, so I make it thick and then add more milk for me.

Eventually a bit of brandy adds a nice flavour as well.

And whipped milk on top....

Ghirardelli hot chocolate mix. Make as instructed on the can.
Add a dash of cinnamon and a dash of red pepper(if you want a little kick).

All this discussion makes me want hot chocolate now! It was quite cool outside today so it feels right to have hot choco. I just boil some water in a kettle and pour it in a cup with a store bought hot chocolate mix hehe! I do have some cocoa powder stashed up though so I should try making it like Alix.

I fill my mug with milk. Pop it into the microwave. Take it out and add a couple teaspoons of cocoa powder and some stevia. Done! simple and delicious.
