Once you’ve made the basic version, try some of these variations:
Chili Chocolate: add a pinch of ground chipotle and a pinch of chili powder.
Almond Chocolate: substitute unsweetened almond milk and add 1/8 teaspoon of almond extract.
Hot Minty Chocolate: add 1/4 teaspoon mint extract
Double Hot Chocolate: add 1 ounce chopped semi-sweet chocolate to the heated milk and stir until melted.
