Any Tips For Making Better Hot Cocoa?

Good Questions

Q: I've been experimenting with making a rich from-scratch hot cocoa. I've tried several kinds of cocoa powder, and a few different techniques, and to me the result always tastes a little powdery, not creamy enough.I know the best way to get creamy hot cocoa is to melt chocolate bars, but are there techniques to make powder-based cocoa taste richer? The closest I've come has been to warm the powder with some coconut oil before adding any milk.
