Hot Chocolate for Two

Made, written & photographed by the creators of the Point

The hot chocolate powder packets might be convenient, but the taste of homemade hot chocolate is too good to pass up.

The half/half mixture of milk and heavy cream bring a smooth, rich level to the classic beverage. (Of course, if you only have milk, feel free to omit the heavy cream and replace with 1 cup milk!)

All you need is a pot, a few ingredients, and about 10 minutes.


Hot Chocolate for Two

serves 2


  • 1 cup milk

  • 1 cup heavy cream

  • 2 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder

  • 2 tablespoons granulated sugar

  • ¼ cup chocolate chips

  • ⅛ teaspoon vanilla extract


  1. Begin by using a sauce pan and pour in your 1 cup milk and 1 cup heavy cream.

  2. Bring to a medium-low heat, and stir in your 2 tablespoons cocoa powder and 2 tablespoons granulated sugar. Whisk continuously and continue to heat thoroughly.

  3. Once the cocoa powder has dissolved and no clumps remain, add in 1/4 cup chocolate chips. Continue to whisk until they are completely melted.

  4. Finish by adding 1/8 teaspoon vanilla extract. Continue to stir and heat on medium-low for one to two minutes.

  5. Remove from heat and pour equally into two mugs.

  6. Top with marshmallows, grated chocolate, and some whipped cream!
