  • Ingredients
  • 2 and ¼ cup of milk
  • 1 tsp sugar
  • ¼ cup chocolate chip cookies
  • 2 tbsp cocoa powder
  • 1-2 tsp cornflour
  • 1 tsp vanilla essence


  • In a pan add ¼ cup milk and add the cocoa powder.
  • Mix well.
  • Add the remaining milk and switch on the stove.
  • Whisk well so that the cocoa powder gets dissolved completely.
  • Now add in the chocolate chips. This gives a nice creamy texture.
  • Stir well.
  • Add the cornflour now.
  • Mix well quickly so that it should not form lumps.
  • Add sugar at this stage.
  • Since we are adding chocolate chips, do not add more sugar.
  • Mix well and allow this to boil for 2 minutes.
  • Since we have added cornflour and chocolate chips, keep stirring this so that it will not get stuck at the bottom.
  • After 2 minutes it will become thick and creamy.
  • Add vanilla essence and mix well.
  • Switch off the flame.
  • Pour into serving glasses and serve hot.
  • In summer you can keep it inside the fridge and serve cold also.
  • Both ways kids loved it.



1.Adding cornflour and chocolate chips make this hot chocolate creamy.
2. Do not add more cornflour, it will make Hot chocolate too thick.
