This evening, I was asked to make two cups of hot chocolate, one with water and one with milk.

The instructions looked simple to follow:
Pour 4 heaped teaspoonfuls of chocolate into a cup, add hot water / milk.
Can't go wrong, I thought.

Both recipients complained of watery hot chocolate.

It seems that there's a difference between "rounded teaspoonfuls" and "heaped teaspoonfuls". Next time, I must remember to load the teaspoon with as much chocolate as can possibly fit on it, rather than simply having a dome of powder.
