Optional:

  • Cinnamon, cardamom, nutmeg, allspice, espresso powder, coconut oil

  1.  Heat a medium saucepan over medium heat. Add milk, cocoa powder, and chocolate extract. Whisk the ingredients together constantly for 5 minutes until thick and frothy. Turn off the heat.
  2. Add dark chocolate chips to a heatproof (glass or metal) bowl, then pour the hot milk mixture over the chips. Whisk the chips until they melt completely.
