I don't care for packaged hot chocolate mix at all. I prefer creamy, smooth, rich hot chocolate. And, I always have what I need on hand. I also love that you can add whatever you like to this. Vanilla, peppermint extract, cinnamon, etc. Below is the basic, simple "recipe". So easy, and SO good!
1-2 tablespoons chocolate chips (I use milk, but use whatever you prefer)
1 mug full of milk
Fill a mug with milk. Pour the milk into a sauce pan, and add chocolate chips (the more you add, the richer it becomes.) Stir constantly over medium heat until smooth and heated through. Pour back into the mug, and enjoy!
