Ingredients

  • 4 ounces semi-sweet chocolate , or milk chocolate (your favorite kind)
  • 1 Tablespoon store-bought hot chocolate powder
  • 2 Tablespoons granulated sugar

  • Whipped Cream for topping, optional

Instructions

  • Chop the chocolate into small pieces and melt in the microwave on half power, stirring every 20 seconds.
