Notes:

  • You may replace our regular cow milk with soy milk, rice milk, almond milk etc.
  • You may substitute maple syrup, honey, or agave nectar for sugar.
  • If you like hot chocolate to be frothy, blend it in the blender.
  • If you feel hot chocolate is very strong, then you may reduce cocoa powder little bit or else add more milk.
