1 can sweetened condensed milk

1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa

1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips

3 cups milk

3 cups water



  1. In a large saucepan over low heat, whisk together the sweetened condensed milk, cocoa powder, salt, chocolate chips, and vanilla extract.
  2. Continue to stir until all chips are melted and mixture is smooth. The chocolate should just be melted and warmed, not too hot.
  3. Whisk in milk a little at at a time until all is combined and smooth.

  5. Continue to heat on low, stirring frequently, until the hot chocolate is the temperature you prefer. As the mixture cooks it should thicken slightly.
