Forget about Swiss Miss! With these four ingredients, you can have a mug of homemade hot chocolate in two minutes:

Mug of hot chocolate and Produkt milk frother

Homemade hot chocolate and the IKEA Produkt milk frother

  • 8 ounces of milk
  • 1 tablespoon of cocoa powder
  • 1 tablespoon of sugar
  • Splash of vanilla extract
  1. Pour the milk in a microwave-safe mug.
  2. Add the cocoa powder, sugar, and vanilla extract, and blend well. I use an IKEA Produkt milk frother.
  3. Heat in the microwave. (My microwave is 1100 watts; I heated my mug for 30 seconds, stirred the hot chocolate, and then heated again for another 45 seconds.)
