Hot Cocoa / Hot Chocolate
Rich, creamy & delicious hot cocoa. So much warm chocolate goodness! Takes only 5 minutes to make!
- 3 cups milk I prefer 2% to whole
- 1/4 cup + 2 tablespoons chocolate chips or chopped chocolate
- 1 tablespoon sugar
- 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
- pinch of salt
- pinch of cinnamon
Combine all ingredients in a saucepan.
Heat over medium heat. Stir constantly. Do not let mixture come to a boil & do not walk away from stove.
Keep stirring constantly until chips are melted. You should see lots of chocolate specs - start whisking mixture until all specs are melted. This will take about 5 minutes start to finish.
Turn heat off & use ladle to pour into mugs. Sprinkle with additional cinnamon & top with whipped cream if desired.
