The Best Hot Chocolate Recipe Ever
Curl up on the couch with a snugly blanket, your favorite book and a cup of this delectable hot chocolate made with Brown Suga. AMAZING!
1/3 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
3/4 cup white sugar
1 pinch of salt
1/3 cup of boiling water
3 1/2 cups milk
3/4 t. vanilla extract
1/2 cup half & half cream
1 T. Brown Suga (each cup of hot cocoa)
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. Stir in 3 1/2 cups of milk and heat until very hot, but do not boil! Remove from heat and add vanilla. Divide between 4 mugs. Add 1 T. of Brown Suga to each mug; stir well. Add the cream to the mugs of cocoa to cool it to drinking temperature. Top with whipped cream and chocolate shavings if you desire. Enjoy!
