The Difference is ...

What is the difference between hot cocoa and hot chocolate?

Cocoa. While cocoa is technically the powdered product, many people use the term "cocoa" to mean the drink, "hot cocoa."

Hot chocolate. This is a chocolate beverage made by mixing shaved, ground or other form of actual chocolate with water or milk, plus a sweetener. Many products made from cocoa powder are called "hot chocolate" but they are not. As chocolate contains far more cocoa butter than cocoa powder, hot chocolate will be smoother and richer than hot cocoa. The chocolate can be ground, shaved, made in small beads or pellets, tablets and other forms. If you were to eat it, it would taste just like chocolate from a chocolate bar.
