  • Temperature of the milk – Always warm the milk in low medium heat and make sure not to boil it. Also make sure to dissolve the chocolate in the same setting to avoid burning of it
  • Mocha – If you would like to make a Mocha version of this drink, then I would suggest adding ¼ cup of strongly brewed coffee to 1 cup of whit chocloate drink
