Grown-Up Hot Chocolate

In the amount of time it would normally take to microwave the water, mix in the packet and let it cool enough to be drinkable, I made real hot chocolate. It’s so, so easy. And especially tasty when you have made it yourself, I promise.

And don’t forget to enjoy the fruits (chocolates?) of your labor. Because homemade doesn’t have to be tedious.

But don't let it sit too long before drinking it - the chipotle gets stronger the longer you wait!
