A cup of hot chocolate

Hot chocolate (also known as hot cocoa, drinking chocolate or just coco) is a heated beverage that typically consists of chocolate or cocoa powder, heated milk or water, and sugar.

The first chocolate beverage is believed to have been created by the Mayan peoples around 2000 years ago, and a cocoa beverage was an essential part of Aztec culture by 1400 A.D. The beverage became popular in Europe after being introduced from Mexico in the New World, and has undergone multiple changes since then. Today, hot chocolate is consumed throughout the world and comes in multiple variations including the very thick cioccolata densa served in Italy, and the thinner hot cocoa that is typically consumed in the United States.
