I have always been a fan of this warm and cozy drink, and I believe that everyone should be able to enjoy it from the comfort of their own home. So, let’s get started!

If you want to make this hot chocolate even more decadent, you can add a splash of Baileys or Kahlua for a boozy twist. You can also sprinkle some cocoa powder on top of the whipped cream for a chocolatey finish.
For a dairy-free version, you can use coconut milk or almond milk instead of regular milk. You can also use dairy-free chocolate chips.
If you want to make a large batch of hot chocolate for a party or gathering, you can double or triple the recipe and keep it warm in a slow cooker. Just make sure to stir it occasionally.
