To make delicious hot chocolate, heat full-fat milk with some fresh cream. Mix well and make sure not to boil the milk, just heat it till the cream melts. Remove from the flame and add chopped milk chocolate and chopped dark chocolate, powdered sugar (optional), and instant coffee powder. Keep stirring till the chocolate completely melts. Heat again and pour the hot chocolate in a mug. Top it with roasted marshmallows or chocolate shavings, or both.
