Delicious Hot Chocolate in the Microwave

Delicious Hot Chocolate in the Microwave

Easy in the microwave! This is my original recipe! It's a rich and tasty drink made with unsweetened cocoa powder.

Ingredients: 1 cup

Cocoa powder (unsweetened)
1 1/2 - 2 tablespoons
Sugar
2 tablespoons
Milk
250 ml

Steps

1. Put the cocoa powder and sugar into a mug or heatproof cup. Stir in the cold milk little by little.
2. Microwave for 1 minute at 1000 W. Remove from the microwave and mix with a spoon.
3. Microwave it for another 15 seconds, and small bubbles will appear on the surface. Mix once more with a spoon and it's done.
4. Top with whipped cream and chocolate syrup. This time I used store-bought, but you could make your own.
5. If you prefer it sweeter and richer, make it with 150 ml of milk.
6. For a more sophisticated taste, add 1/2 a teaspoon of liqueur, such as Baileys or Cointreau.

Story Behind this Recipe

I wondered if it would be more delicious made with cocoa powder rather than store-bought cocoa. I tried it and yes, it was more delicious.
