Granny's No Sh*t Hot Chocolate

I'm a purist on my hot chocolate.  Those mixes all have dry powdered stuff which I am inclined to doubt is really milk or even chocolate. There is no doubt that the recipe I'm about to give you is hot chocolate.

Get a mug and fill it with milk.  Add some cream or half & half if you have it to make it even richer. For God's sake please don't use any of that 1% stuff.  Pour the milk in a pan and add a couple of squares of dark chocolate.  If you don't have a bar of chocolate handy you can use chocolate chips.  Heat this stirring with a wire whisk until the chocolate is melted.  The chocolate doesn't dispurse easily and you might even need an electric mixer.  Otherwise the chocolate will stay in tiny clumps.  Add a dash of vanilla.  Pour it all back into the mug.
