Hot chocolate (alternatively hot cocoa) is a drink made from cocoa powder or (in the case of luxury versions) from melted chocolate.

History

Conjure Cocoa was a brand of instant wizarding hot chocolate sold in the United States in the early 20th century.[2] Tina and Queenie Goldstein served some to Newt and Jacob Kowalski when the men visited their apartment in December 1926.[3]

Around 1946, Tom Riddle killed Hepzibah Smith by spilling a little known poison into her evening cocoa, in order to take Hufflepuff's Cup and Slytherin's Locket from her. He utilised a memory modification charm on Smith's house-elf, Hokey, to make it appear as though the elderly servant accidentally mistook the poison for sugar while preparing the beverage for her mistress, which the Ministry accepted without further investigation.[4]

Molly Weasley served this on the evening of 31 August in 1992, following Fred and George Weasley giving an exhibition of Dr Filibuster's Fabulous Wet-Start, No-Heat Fireworks.[5] The drink is also made at Hogwarts, as Albus Dumbledore was going downstairs to get a cup one night early 1992, which led him to discover a Petrified Colin Creevey.[6] Later that year, Dumbledore suggested that Ginny Weasley should have some, after her encounter in the Chamber of Secrets, saying "I always find that cheers me up."[5]

It was served on the Knight Bus. While Harry Potter was on the bus in 1993 he ended up spilling his hot chocolate before he was able to drink it.[1]
