This is a good recipe for a basic hot chocolate; it does not taste like Starbucks, though, sorry. I was a Starbucks got chocolate addict in the past and have probably had 200 of them. One thing that will help steer it a bit toward authenticity is adding homemade whipped cream like this (this is what the baristas do): put 8 pumps of Starbucks vanilla syrup (you can buy this from any of their stores) into a pint of whipping cream and - you guessed it - whip!

This tastes JUST like the Starbucks hot chocolate! I don't really like Starbucks anyway, but this was pretty good!

Was looking for a recipe for when my grandson comes to visit. Made this with Half & Half
, added 2 Hershey's peppermint kisses. Need look no further! So, so good.
As a diabetic, one of the things I really missed was my starbucks hot chocolate. However I tried this recipe with bourneville unsweetened dark cocoa powder and splenda instead of sugar and it works! It tasted EXACTLY like my local starbucks! Thank you!

Since I didn't have cocoa powder, I substituedd the cocoa for dark chili chocolate. It tastes way better than the packaged ones you buy at the store. Plus, it adds a little spice!

Made this once without vanilla extract and it was delicious! Made it the second time with vanilla extract and it tasted more like perfume for than anything. I suggest leaving it out.
This was delicious. I made it without the cream and vanilla...it is so gooood, after so many hot chocolate disasters I have finally found something that is just amazing, although, I think the Starbucks one is a little different but I like this one even more.
