How to Make Hot Chocolate

When you make this hot chocolate from scratch you will get a creamy, delicious and rich end product that is not overly sweet like some of the pre-package mixes can be.

In microwave, on medium heat, melt candy bars in a 2-cup glass measuring cup. In small bowl, mix together sugar and cocoa. Stir into melted chocolate and heat 20 seconds in the microwave.
Whisk in milk. In blender, on high speed, combine milk-chocolate mixture and ice until smooth. Divide among 3 to 4 glasses, and garnish with whipped cream and heart sprinkles.
