Make sure the egg is smooth and whisked by it's self and there will be no chunks.

I made this right after school just for fun and it was very quick and easy. I also used fat-free milk so it had fewer calories and it was still good.

I loved this recipe! I added a tablespoon of white chocolate and a little whipping cream!

This was a way over rated recipe. All the hard work of grating the chocolate was enough to turn me off from the begining. It isn`t good tasting and it takes a long time to do. If you want hot chocolate get it out of a packet!!!
