1.  Melt the chocolate in a double boiler or in the microwave.

2.  In a medium size sauce pan add all of the ingredients (don't add the garnish ingredients) and let it simmer on medium heat until it gets hot and you're ready for a nice cup!

3.  I used a little bit of honey around the rim of my glass to make the sprinkles and coconut stick. Use whatever you would like!

4.  I thought about this later... If you need a little caffeine boost when making this, add a little coffee to your cup, then top it with the hot chocolate mixture, and garnish as desired! Adding coffee will make this a little less sweet. Note: This is super sweet and chocolatey! Every chocoholic should love it!

Cooks' note:
* (I found some nonGMO/gluten free ones at Whole Foods...and YES, they taste so good!), and toasted shredded coconut, optional
