Give it time: You burned your throat drinking hot chocolate. It will take up to two weeks for the healing to place depending on the severity of injury. There are some things that may help. Don't smoke in general, especially now; it will slow down the healing process. Avoid fruit juices and spicy food for two weeks. Drink plenty of water. Water at room temperature is best. Gargle with mild salt water.
