...Make The Best-Ever Hot Chocolate!
At this time of year all we really want to do is snuggle under a blanket with a steaming mug of cocoa, but all too often those store-bought hot chockie mixes leave you feeling, well... dissatisfied. Many of us don't want to try making it from scratch because it's a bit too much like hard work and we're a little unsure of ourselves in the kitchen.
That's why I'm here to help.
I now present to you, without further ado, Jeff's Foolproof Hot Choc!
2 mugs the same size
Cocoa powder (not hot chocolate mix - the real deal)
In one mug, pour 1-2 tablespoons of milk. In the other, fill it with milk about 7/8ths of the way. Put this one in the microwave on high for about 2 and a half minutes.
While that's cookin', in the other mug add 2 teaspoons of sugar, 1 heaped teaspoon of cocoa powder and a drop or two of vanilla essence. Stir these together for about 30 seconds till it forms a sort of runny paste.
When the hot milk is done in the old micro, take it and pour it into the other mug. Do this over the sink, it might splash.
Stir and enjoy. Add marshmallows, whipped cream or grate some dark chocolate on the top if you wish.
You are welcome!
