This hot chocolate recipe is my own, and maybe someone else in the world uses the same ingredients to make hot chocolate.
I always like my hot chocolate thick and more on the milk chocolate side. However, if you are a dark chocolate lover, you can substitute milk chocolate with dark chocolate, and use dark cocoa powder and less sugar/sweet condensed milk.
I use a small amount of coffee to enhance the taste of my hot chocolate, you can also use cinnamon, nutmeg or any other spices to enhance the flavor.
Milk 4 cups and a little more
Cooking Chocolate (Milk) 200 gms
Cocoa Powder 4 tblsp
Milk 1/8 cups
Coffee 1 tblsp
Sweet Condensed Milk 1/8 cup or according to taste

- Heat one cup of milk in a pan.
- Once it starts simmering add chocolate and keep stirring occasionally till the chocolate is completely melted.
- Add the rest of the milk and cook it till it starts simmering.
- In a small bowl form a thick paste with cocoa powder and milk.
- Turn off the flame of the milk mixture and add the thick cocoa paste (mentioned in 4), a little quantity at a time while continuously stirring.
- Once the cocoa mixture is incorporated with the milk mixture, turn on the flame and let the hot chocolate simmer.
