    Easy, fast, and tasty; I tripled the recipe for company. I would like to try doubling the chocolate, as well, because it was a very subtle flavor.

    Love this simple little recipe for hot chocolate. I cut it in half for just me. I have to admit I have used it every day since seeing this recipe, one of my guilty pleasures!
