So, this recipe is pretty genius, and probaly the best homemade (or store bought), hot chocolate you'll ever drink.The best thing about it (besides the amount of real chocolate) is, that the recipe is not for one serving only. It makes a whole batch. Depending on how big your chcolate craving and cups are, you'll get 6-10 servings out of the recipe. You just take a tablespoon full and stir it into hot milk. Done! It keeps in the fridge for up to a week. With only two main ingredients it's super easy and you can substitute the spices with your favorite ones. Although this spice quintet really sets the tone. —Maja
