Because someone lost the recipe

Spanish-Style Hot Chocolate

(Source:  The Foods & Wines of Spain, by Penelope Casas)

Makes 1 cup

1 cup milk
1 ounce unsweetened chocolate, cut in small pieces
8 teaspoons sugar, or to taste

Mix together the milk, chocolate, and sugar.  Heat over a low flame, stirring with a wire whisk, until the chocolate is completely dissolved.  Turn up the heat and bring to a boil.  Allow the mixture to bubble up to the top of the saucepan.  Remove immediately from the heat and beat with the wire whisk.  Repeat boiling and beating 3 more times, then tilt the pan and beat the hot chocolate well with the wire whisk until it is very frothy.  Serve immediately.

No, this isn't Mexican hot chocolate. The whisking technique makes a drink so thick you can almost eat it with a spoon. :-)
