Make vegan hot cocoa, sugar free! And it’s super easy! Hot Chocolate

This "recipe" is so simple I feel like it shouldn't even be a post, but here goes! For an embarrassing amount of years, delicious hot cocoa was beyond my grasp. As a huge fan of chocolate, I found this difficult to deal with. I can't have any pre-made mixes (I've heard there are vegan ones. Whatever!) because they all have milk in them.

Then I discovered unsweetened chocolate...
