- 4 cups whole milk
- 2 tablespoons sugar
- 2 tablespoons plus one teaspoon unsweetened Dutch-process cocoa powder
- 4 tablespoons finely chopped or shaved semisweet chocolate

Bring milk, sugar, cocoa powder, and chocolate to a simmer in a medium saucepan over medium heat, stirring until chocolate has melted (do not let boil). Pour into mugs.
