Improve your hot chocolate

Can hot chocolate get any better? Yes.1

This also works for milkshakes.

  • Make a mug of your preferred brand of hot chocolate.

    • Always use milk; never water.

  • Stir in a tiny touch of vanilla extract.

    • That's where the magic is.

  1. There was a waiter (who I swear was a god) at a breakfast bar my mother often took me to when I was even shorter than I am now. Her hot chocolate was always better than that of the other waiters. Was she magic? Probably. But she also used vanilla.
