  • chocolate bar
  • milk
  • sugar


  • Mince a bar of Tuanis chocolate, or your favorite bar.
  • Whisk two cups of whole milk (substitute a half cup or so of cream for extra deliciousness), a pinch of sugar, and a pinch of freshly and finely ground coffee (optional), over low to medium heat, and whisking continuously, until it's about to boil, but isn't boiling. You'll see/hear little bubbles starting to form! Best to just keep an eye on it.
  • Remove from heat, add chocolate, stir until dissolved.
  • Top with marshmallows or whipped cream (why not? Just whip some cream with a little bit of powdered sugar and you're in business). If you're feeling fancy, garnish with the ends of your minced chocolate bar. If you don't have a bar around, use a couple tablespoons of cacao or cocoa and add a little sugar or honey to sweeten it up.


Editor's note: you could also just heat up some chocolate milk.
