How do you do it?

I start with Hershey's Cocoa Powder (unsweetened), milk and whatever sugar I have lying around the house. I was never a huge fan of Marshmallows.

Cocoa powder, mixed with warm milk. I also add some vanilla and a bit of sugar.

Not a fan of marshmallows, but I always make with unsweetened cocoa. The packaged stuff is almost universally terrible, and you can't adjust the level of sweetness. I also prefer to use "raw" or unbleached cane sugar.

Also, vodka.

I use one of those Godiva powdered canisters and top it off with whipped cream.

Warm half/half (about two T) in a saucepan. Add shaved chocolate, stirring constantly to melt. Stream in milk when chocolate is fully melted, and then sugar if your chocolate is very dark. Add dash Sri Lankan true cinnamon (not cassia, which is too assertive), the smallest dash of salt, and a half-shot of brandy.

Because you control the chocolate concentration, it can be as thick and creamy as espresso, or thin as Hershey's and milk.

I blend 8 oz semi-sweet chocolate and 1/2 cup sugar into a powder, add 2 cups of boiling milk, and blend some more. It's the first step of my chocolate ice cream recipe, but it works fine as a hot chocolate.

This sounds good, but like too much work.
