Usage notes[edit]

Chocolate milk is distinct from milk chocolate, which is a solid form of chocolate made with milk. Chocolate syrup or powder mixed with a liquid and served hot is typically referred to as hot chocolate; this drink is usually made with water, although it may also be made with milk.
