Preparation -- 5 minutes

Pre-heat the oven to 160 degrees celsius or 320 degrees fahrenheit. Place the ramekins in a large oven dish. Heat milk in a medium-sized pan.

Chop the chocolate bar into smaller pieces and stir them into the warm milk. Let it simmer for a few minutes and stir with a whisk until you've reached a smooth sort of 'chocolate milk'.
