Ahhh
The second finest thing about owning an espresso machine is the capacity to produce a lovely frothy warming hot chocolate on demand.

It will provide a warm toasty feeling. Especially for him.

Do you just use the steam nozzle wotsit to blast through some milk and cocoa powder? Or are there arcane wossnames?

As a Hot Chocolate fan with an Espresso machine to hand I feel the need to be informed...

Well, my preferred method is as follows:

Put a small quantity of milk in the bottom of a mug. Microwave for 30 seconds.

Add 1 teaspoon of cocoa powder (Green and Blacks is highly recommended) and either 2-3 teaspoons of sugar or 3-4 sweeteners to taste. Stir until cocoa has disolved in the hot milk.

Froth milk as per a standard latte or cappucino. Pour onto the mixture until the mug is full.

Add marshmallows if you're an evil meat eating type. ;)
