Hot Chocolate at Home

It's been one of those chilly evenings here in Connecticut- and while I've had the itch to drive the 5 minutes to Starbucks, I've resisted- and used some of the odds & ends I had already to add my own touches to a Hot Chocolate {recipe} that I found.
You'll Need: (according to my variations)
1/4 bag of Milk Chocolate Chips
1/4 c. Whipping Cream
2 c. Milk (I used 1%)
Pinch of Salt
Tsp. of Vanilla Extract
1 Tbsp. (or less) Brown Sugar

Over medium heat- combine milk & cream.
When you see steam- add all of the other ingredients.
Stir thoroughly.
It's honestly delicious.
I find that generally, my homemade hot chocolate (typically milk & Hershey's chocolate only) is way too thin & rich for me.
This had more substance and a milder chocolate flavor.
