Video: How to make your cocoa divine
Some hot tips to make your hot drink better.
Every night around the world, especially in the colder bits of it, millions of people relax with a nice mug of hot cocoa.

Thankfully, however, it doesn’t have to be this way. The good folk at the American Chemical Society – who, like most scientists, like a nice hot drink and don’t have much money – have worked out a number of kitchen hacks to render even the most miserable cut-price cocoa rich and delicious.
