The only way to make brewing hot chocolate faster is by using a coffee maker. Empty a packet of instant hot chocolate into the decanter, add 3/4 cup of water to the reservoir and turn it on -- it doesn't get any simpler. You may have to make more than one cup of hot chocolate at a time to meet the minimum fill line of the water reservoir, but that just means more hot chocolate for you and your family or guests.

Easy, Fast and Homemade

Mix together 2 parts powdered milk, 2 parts powdered sugar and 1 part cocoa in a mixing bowl. Add 1 /2 cup of the mixture to the coffee decanter and 1/2 cup of water to the water reservoir for each cup of hot chocolate you want to make. Stir in milk or cream before you serve, if desired.
