I wanted to use up some full-size chocolate bars leftover from Halloween and decided to make hot chocolate out of one. The result was fabulous!

Well this is a simple recipe but a delicious one nonetheless. And really I wasn't even thinking of using a candy bar when I was looking for a hot chocolate recipe so I thought it was a great idea. I used 3 fun sized Hershey bars to make it extra chocolately. Also I just heated it up in the microwave to avoid washing more dishes. I just heated stirred and repeated until hot. Topped with marshmallows. Perfect for a chilly Fall day:) Read More

Quick recipe with very little measuring. Even with a 1.45 oz Hershey's Milk Chocolate with Almonds Bar it came out good (removed the almonds). It would of course taste better with quality chocolate but this is a good way to use up the nasty Hershey's chocolate that my family won't eat. Read More

Pretty great and really fast and easy. Would've been better if I had used better chocolate. Add an extra bar of chocolate if you like your hot chocolate to be extra thick. Read More

We received dark chocolate bars as a Christmas gift and no one in our family liked them because they were very bitter. I found this recipe and chopped the bars up. I added milk chocolate chips and whisked with the milk as described. Wow! It was really easy and tasted rich and creamy. Read More
