1/2 gallon whole milk
1 12-ounce bag Premium Dark Cocoa Candy Melts or semisweet chocolate chips


Heat the milk over medium-low heat; don't let it boil. Add about 1/4 cup of the Candy Melts or semisweet chocolate chips to each of 8 mugs and fill them with the hot milk. Stir.

Note: There's something enchanting for kids about watching hot milk turn into hot chocolate before their eyes. Instead of spoons, offer cinnamon sticks or candy canes for stirring.
