Growing up, I thought the only way to make hot chocolate was to pull a packet out of the box, add hot water (or milk), and stir. Making it “gourmet” meant adding marshmallows—the large ones, since my mom was too cheap to splurge on the mini kind. I only found out hot chocolate could be made another way by accident.
