Hot Cocoa - Adapted from Hersheys
8oz warm/hot milk
2 T cocoa (Special Dark is awesome)
2 T sugar
1/4 tsp. vanilla*
*If you wish to have a more "french vanilla" cocoa, add 2ish tsp. vanilla
First, measure the cocoa and sugar and place in the bottom of the mug of choice.
Then, heat the milk (in a microwave safe container, or in a saucepan) until it reaches the desired warmness. I've found it helpful to warm the milk in a large measuring cup because it pours so nicely into the mug.
Stir the mix as needed to dissolve the chocolate. Some clumps will remain... but, that's life. ( Ipoured a little and then the remainder)
Add in vanilla and the dash of salt. I don't know why you need the salt, but, it does make a difference.
Enjoy your nice mug of hot chocolate.
Recommended use: with a blanket, a good book and sitting before a fireplace.
