Pretty tasty. I actually made this in the microwave, rather than on the stove and thought it was a very easy recipe with great results. Additionally, I made it with a couple squares of a chocolate bar rather than baker's chocolate since I didn't have any baker's chocolate on hand. Delicious! Will make again on another chilly day!

This turned out really chalky. Couldn't even finish a mug of it. I didn't change anything, and everyone else loved it, but ew.

I loved this- it was so good! I used Nestle Chocolatier Extra Dark Chocolate, 2 cups of organic whole milk and 1 cup of organic 1% milk, and real vanilla extract. This is so much richer, and more flavorful, than regular ol' hot cocoa. I broke up a small candy cane and put it in the bottom of my mug- dee-LISH- as my daughter would say!!

Wow! I can't imagine drinking instant ever again. I used 1% milk and added a teaspoon of powdered creamer to each cup. Was very rich and creamy.

Not really thick, but rich, for sure. I cut it in half, made a big sized mug just for myself. Used half'n'half. I added a few shakes of cinnamon while the chocolate/water/sugar was at a boil, along with a shake of salt. I think it really brought up the flavor. While sweet, it's not really a chocolatey richness. I may add more chocolate next time, or a bit less sugar. Overall, not bad, and it makes up quick/I had everything in the house. It's worth a shot! And the recipe cuts in half wonderfully. :) Oh, and I omitted the vanilla- totally forgot about it. But it was still tasty.

Great homemade hot chocolate. I cut down on the vanilla just a little bit and thew a handful of small marshmellows in to melt towards the end. Very rich. Very yummy!
