LOVE hot chocolate. Great time to be into it, there's all sorts of cool stuff. Hot cocoa "bombs", stir sticks, you name it. I am definitely Nestle over Hershey but best hot cocoa I ever had was Ghiardelli.

Love the hot chocolate, but lately been liking the malt chocolate. Always was a sucker for malt.
Same here and love Ovaltine too.

My wife is the hot chocolate lover in this house. She loves Abuelita, but she's playing with making her own recipe that uses grated 80-90% dark chocolate bars with grated 60% chocolate bars mixed with Dutch cocoa powder and blended in hot milk with some cinnamon and a tiny bit of cayenne powder. She hasn't hit the sweet spot yet, and I'm leaving it to her to find it before I try her creation.

My Mother use to make a homemade version of hot chocolate and as best I can
remember it had cocoa powder, carnation instant milk and sugar.
