Yes you can, I use it for my Hot Chocolate. If you would like to try this is what I do. You will need of course your choice of Nestle chips(white, milk or dark),milk, heavy cream, just a pinch or so of sugar and a drop of vanilla extract. First over the stove warm up your milk and heavy cream just before it starts to boil take off stove and add the chocolate, sugar and vanilla. Let that sit (off of stove) for a minute.(that will melt your chips) Then take a whisk and mix then put aback on the stove for just a bit more for a minute or less. Poor in a mug put some whip cream on top and there you go you have a wonderful cup of Hot Chocolate!!!
