It's getting that time again... It's fall already and winter is hiding behind the corner. Everyone loves hot chocolate, but why bring out the pots and stove when you got a microwave? This recipe tastes like stovetop Hot Chocolate, but is made instant in the microwave!

Comments, ratings, and pictures are welcome!

Step 1: Ingrediants!

So... You will need:
2 tbsp sugar
1 tbsp pure cocoa powder*
1 drop vanilla extract
1 pinch of salt
1 cup of milk

Add all of the dry ingrediants, and then add the vanilla extract.

  • Any more cocoa and it will taste BAD
I m sipping in my hot chocolate while writing this. THIS. IS. AWESOME. ( I didn't use vanilla as I don't hav it ri8 now...)
I just made this and it is so good, but its a bit too sweet.
mmmm, it looks so good
I just made a cup of this, and it is so good, a bit too sweet though.
Forgo the vanilla extract all together and just make vanilla sugar for large batches:<br><br>http://www.foodnetwork.com/recipes/alton-brown/vanilla-sugar-recipe/index.html<br><br>That way all you need is the milk at the end. :)
heck, with a bit of experimentation you could probably use dry milk powder too!
I. LOVE. YOU. <br> <br>I have to admit, I was doubtful when making this. I'm quite the hot chocolate fanatic! (I am ADDICTED to those packets actually....) While I was making this, I was smelling my mug pretty much eveyr 10 seconds, and I just couldn't imagine it tasting good! After I got it out of the microwave, I was thinking &quot;Wow I just wasted some ingredients&quot; but when I mixed and tasted it, I was in love. <br> <br>I shall never go hot chocolate- deprived again when my mom decides to go to work and tell me that she isn't going to buy more hot chocolate because &quot;All that sugar isn't good for you and you are getting too addicted&quot; PSSHHH. This stuff is AMAZING!
It is amazing! Thanks for the reply :D
Mmm... smells good!
This is REALLY good! I put some hazelnut coffee syrup in mine, yum!
I've made this dozens of times since my last post. My favorite way of eating it is to add about 1/8 tsp of both mint and vanilla extracts. Hot drink that leaves your mouth feeling cool. Yum!
This hot chocolate is sooooo good! i was at starbucks the other day and they have a peppermint hot cocoa. after seeing this instructable i decided to make my own w/ peppermint extract instead of vanilla. now i dont have to pay 5 dollars for peppermint hot cocoa!!!
lol great minds think a like...
Thanks! That's cool, but I'd have to stick with using powdered peppermints in my cocoa :P
Thanks for the ible i no longer have to be spend alot of money on Hot coco.
I don't have vanilla extract what else can I use
Just don't use it. It just changes the flavor, but it'll be fine without any extract.
vannilla is gross! add some peppermint essence :)
Mmm... Looks delicious! PS: You eat a hell lot of marshmellows!
pfffft.. I usually eat more.
this is the best hot chocolate I have made! Thanks for the great recipie
Very delicious indeed :D but i didnt have any vanilla extract,but still very good!
It's not needed, but it does change flavoring.
I added some cinnamon and it tastes pretty good,kidna christmassy and the vanilla extract changes the flavour a bit
Mmmm.... This is excellent! I must make more..... NOW!
can i post the cannon
If you want. Dont call it knex heavy cannon v6 though, call it something new.
knex smallish cannon
Does this work on a normal cooker?
What do you mean?
chocolate is tasty red vs. blue rocks!
You mean halo, right?
I'm sipping on your recipe as i read these comments. I gotta say it's pretty tasty.
Thanks for the comment! Just remember, not a lot of vanilla, and LOTS of marshmellows! <br/><br/><sub>unless, of course, you like vanilla and hate marshmellows</sub> :)<br/>
*mouth waters* <br/><br/>That looks so freaking sweet....<br/>
lol? thanks
I'm dead serious. I went to Wal-Fart right after reading this tutorial so I could get all the ingrediants. BTW, me + microwave =BAD <br/>
Wow... I wish I could go to the store when ever I want to... I still need some piping pieces to finish my 25mm Pneumatic sniper rifle
I like the instant mix idea. I bet you could use powdered milk for a "just add water" deal. Yours probably tastes better though.
Yeah... Milk always tastes better. And don't use store bought instant :/<br/><br/>I have some and the ingrediants are as follows (remember! the first ingrediants are what there are more of):<br/><em>sugar</em>,<em><strong>corn syrup</strong></em>, <strong>modified whey</strong>, cocoa (processed with <strong>alkali</strong>), hydrogenated coconut <strong>oil</strong>, marshmellows (<em>sugar</em>, <em><strong>cornsyrup</strong></em>, <strong>modified corn starch</strong>, gelatin,<strong> artifial flavor</strong>), less than 2% of: nonfat milk, salt, <strong>dipotassium phosphate, carrageenan, artificial flavor, mono- and diglycerides</strong><br/>The <strong>bolded</strong> are want I don't want to drink, the <em>italisied</em> are so you notice how much there is (the order)<br/>
It should be noted that you can scale up the quantities of the dry ingredients and they keep dang-near-FOREVER in a nice big airtight container. Also, here are the dry ingredients scaled up to make enough for 20 cups of chocolate. (which is about what I can drink in a week, in the winter.) 2 1/2 cups Sugar 1 1/4 cups Pure Coco Powder 1 tablespoon Salt The vanilla and milk you add at mixing time, obviously. :P
Oh wow, NICE! so, for the individual cups, would I put 3 tbsp and 1 pinch if all the dry ingrediants are well mixed? This is helpful! I'll put it in my 'ible :D
You would put in 3 Tablespoons of the mix, and that's it. The salt is already calculated in to the dry ingredients. No extra salt required. Just mix it all together, and then three tablespoons in a cup of warm milk. Also, putting the Vanilla in last will make it be more fragrant in the drink--whereas putting it in before you heat the milk will make it taste more. it's hard to explain, you have to try it for yourself. :P
Ok, thanks!
Dang... Forgot to say just put three tablespoons of this mixture into the milk and you've got your recipe here.
You forgot a picture of a Pinch of salt
oh yeah xD
