Hot Chocolate

How do you make hot chocolate? My daughter and I are big fans of hot chocolate, so I'm trying to find an easy method of making a really tasty cuppa.

We used to buy the mix-with-water hot chocolate, but one day I read the ingredients and that was the end of that. Now we buy chocolate powder that you mix with milk. Sometimes we buy a "fancy" brand, sometimes the not-so-fancy brand. I don't like the skin that develops when milk is heated, so my current method is to heat up water and stir in powdered milk with the chocolate powder. I use a little battery-operated frother to thoroughly dissolve all the powder.

I am waiting for this book to come in through interlibrary loan, so in the meantime I thought I'd ask how others treat themselves to hot chocolate.

It snowed today, so it's definitely hot chocolate weather!
