Old-Fashioned Hot Chocolate With Variations Recipe

Old-fashioned hot chocolate is a delicious drink for the chilly days of fall and winter. This homemade version is creamy, delicious, and surprisingly easy to make. All you need is unsweetened chocolate, milk, sugar, and vanilla. A steaming cup of hot chocolate is not complete without an indulgent finishing touch. Classic toppings include regular or mini marshmallows or a big spoonful of marshmallow creme or fluff. You can also top it off with freshly whipped cream or whipped topping. Hot chocolate is also quite versatile, and there are lots of ways to make it your own or take it over the top. The most popular variations can make it richer, add some spice, or spike it with mint and chocolate liqueurs.
