Homemade Chocolate Milk

Yeah… I went there. I made homemade chocolate milk. Real homemade chocolate milk…meaning it’s made from scratch rather than from a squeeze bottle of Hershey’s chocolate syrup. You’ll never have to buy chocolate milk syrup/powder again.

It’s quite simple to prepare your own chocolate milk. Of course you need cocoa powder, sugar, and milk. It’s pretty easy from there. You have to try this, just to prove to yourself that you don’t need to buy things pre-made. This is as easy as boiling a pot of water.

You can either use a microwave to make this, or if you don’t have a microwave(not sure why you wouldn’t), go ahead and use boiling hot water instead.

It really does look like melted chocolate. You could transfer this to a new glass, but let’s not make any more dishes dirty. The glass isn’t too warm.

While whisking with a fork, add the cold milk in to form the chocolate milk. If you have vanilla extract, you can go ahead and add 1/4 teaspoon here.
