Sarah's Stovetop Hot Chocolate Recipe

Stovetop Hot Chocolate (Yields 2-3 Servings)

During the winter, you’ll find me by the stove making a pot of hot chocolate almost every night. The flavor is a huge improvement over instant hot cocoa, and it really doesn’t take much more time to make. Plus, something about stirring hot chocolate over the stove in my small copper pot feels more magical than just pulling a mug out of the microwave.


If you’re feeling adventurous, why not try the following recipe with a bar from your Chococurb box? You’ll be amazed at how the flavors of single origin chocolate pop when you turn a bar into a beverage.   


  • cups milk
  • 6 tablespoons dark or semisweet chocolate, chopped into small pieces
  • Powdered sugar, optional (regular sugar can be used, but I find powdered sugar dissolves better) 



  1. Heat milk in a small saucepan over medium heat until steaming. Do not let the milk come to a boil.  
  2. Lower heat and add the chopped chocolate.  
  3. Whisk until the mixture is slightly frothy and the chocolate is completely melted. (An easy way to check is by dipping a spoon in and looking to to see if there are still specks of unmelted chocolate).  
  4. Add powdered sugar to taste.
  5. Pour, drink, and enjoy!
