- 1 cup milk (more info below)

I use lactose free milk at home. Nut, rice and soy milks are just too watery. You might be able to get around the watery issue by using coconut milk, though! If you're feeling ridiculously decadent, I recommend using 1/2 cup milk and 1/2 cup heavy cream. :D
At home, I use Hershey's Special Dark cocoa powder
and that requires only a 1/2 tablespoon to taste really chocolatey.
For regular Hershey's, Callebaut, and Ghirardelli, I think 1 full tablespoon works best.
