Creamy Hot Cocoa

From allrecipes.com.

INGREDIENTS:

  • 1/3 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 3/4 cup white sugar (I halved the sugar)
  • 1 pinch salt
  • 1/3 cup boiling water
  • 3 1/2 cups milk (I used 4 cups of whole milk)
  • 3/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup half-and-half cream (I skipped the half and half because I didn’t have any on hand)

DIRECTIONS:

  1. Combine the cocoa, sugar and pinch of salt in a saucepan. Blend in the boiling water. Bring this mixture to an easy boil while you stir. Simmer and stir for about 2 minutes. Watch that it doesn’t scorch. 
  2. Stir in 3 1/2 cups of milk and heat until very hot, but do not boil! Remove from heat and add vanilla. 
  3. Divide between 4 mugs. Add the cream to the mugs of cocoa to cool it to drinking temperature.
