Prep Time :  5 mins

Cook Time : 10  mins

Servings : 2 persons

Indian cuisine


Full fat or whole milk – 4 cups

Unsweetened cocoa powder – 2 teaspoons

Sugar – 2 teaspoons or as per taste

Dark chocolate  – 5 small pieces


I have used the Cadbury bournville 50 percent dark chocolate for this recipe.  You can use any other brand of dark chocolate.  Keep 5 pieces of chocolate aside.

Heat the milk on a medium flame.  Meanwhile chop roughly the chocolate into medium pieces.

Once the milk comes to a full boil, lower the flame.  Add chocolate pieces, cocoa powder and sugar.  Mix well with the help of a whisker.

Keep cooking on a low flame till everything gets blended well.  Then switch off the flame.  Pour immediately in a serving mug and serve hot.


Adjust the sugar as per your taste.

Add a pinch of cinnamon powder  for an enhanced flavor.

You can also add a few drops of vanilla essence for flavor.

Good quality cocoa powder and dark chocolate works well for this recipe.

Do not heat the drink for a long time after mixing all the ingredients.

Always use full fat milk for making hot chocolate as it adds to the flavor and taste of the drink.

Add whipped cream on top as garnish.
