What can you do with leftover hot chocolate?

  • Allow the hot chocolate to cool completely. Pour it into a pitcher, seal and refrigerate. Once cooled it becomes delicious chocolate milk!
  • Or pour into your favorite mug and reheat it in the microwave. 
Use a funnel and pour it into the original milk jug - it's a perfect container for leftovers. That way, you can shake it up well prior to reheating.
