semi-sweet chocolate (either baking squares grated or chippits)
milk (any kind of white milk "fat free" "lactose free" "1%" 2%" 3.25%", etc..)
pure vanilla (or one whole vanilla bean)
on the picture, i whipped real whipping cream and i shaved some chocolate to sprinkle over top :)
however you can top your hot chocolate as you wish :)
roasted marshmallows, regular mallows, a cinnamon stick, instead of using pure vanilla you can alternate with pure peppermint and add a candy cane to the mug :)
