World's Best Homemade Hot Chocolate

I've been obsessing over making homemade hot chocolate lately - and why not? With three little kids and winter weather, pretty much every day is a hot chocolate day around here. I've even gotten a little creative with our recipes.

After a lot of tries here in our Random Handprints test kitchen, here are our top three picks for the world's best homemade hot chocolate:

1. Nutella Hot Chocolate. This is a little time/effort intensive, but worth it if your kids are Nutella fans like mine are. All you need to do is heat milk in a pan on the stove, and stir in 2 tablespoons of Nutella per cup, until it dissolves. Amazing.

3. Authentic Mexican Hot Chocolate - made with fair-trade Taza chocolate, the recipe is on their website. Another one that involves some time dissolving chocolate on the stove, but so worth it for the yummy results.

2. Jacques Torres Hot Chocolate - ready to mix-and-go, and as the tagline on the tin reads "Better than you can remember." And it so is.

Do you have a favorite way to make hot chocolate? Share, please!

I've made Mexican hot chocolate but clearly not the best way ever like you showed. Must do!

I love those round chocolate discs. I can't wait for the milk to heat up, though. I just eat them straight - esp. the cinnamon, that one is my favorite.
