  1. Combine both chips and brown sugar in a heatproof bowl (preferably with a spout), and set aside.
  2. Combine both milks in a small saucepan and heat over medium-low heat, whisking frequently. (The faster you whisk, the foamier the milk will be.)
  3. When the milk looks like it’s about to boil, remove from heat and pour into bowl over the chips and sugar.
  4. Let sit about 1 minute, then whisk until completely smooth.
  5. Pour into a mug and enjoy!
Recipe Notes

High quality chocolate will improve the taste of this recipe, but I’m always a proponent of using what you have on hand.  I used Ghirardelli chips (60% Dark, and Milk), but you can also chop chocolate if you don’t have chips.  The chips just save a step!

I used whole milk for my test recipes, but I think whatever type of milk you have on hand should also work fine.  If you have heavy cream, that can help to thicken a lighter milk.
