of milk, sugar, a thickening agent like flour or corn starch, and, of course, chocolate (often in the form of cocoa powder), hot chocolate in Italy has nothing to do with the watery, sippable kind that you may have had elsewhere
consistency of pudding, and the way to enjoy it is with a small spoon, one delicious mouthful at a time. Just be careful as it's quite hot!
