Sweetened Condensed Milk Is The Secret To More Decadent Hot Chocolate
Hot chocolate is already an indulgent treat — after all, it's essentially a dessert in drink form. However, if you want to up its decadence, add in sweetened condensed milk.
For each serving, use 1 cup of milk and about 3 ½ ounces of sweetened condensed milk. This way, you'll have a mug of hot chocolate that's much richer and creamier.
Since sweetened condensed milk is already sweetened, consider using unsweetened cocoa powder. If you're using actual chocolate, opt for a semi-sweet variety.
