Homemade Hot Chocolate

Cold winter night outside? Warm up with a cup of hot chocolate! This is real, homemade hot chocolate - surprisingly easy to make.

1½ C milk (or soy milk)
1½ tsp dark cocoa powder (70% or higher)
2 oz dark chocolate (70% or higher)
½ tsp vanilla extract
1 Tbs sugar

Over medium-low heat, warm half of the milk until near boiling, then add the cocoa powder and using a whisk, beat the mixture until blended. Then add the chocolate, vanilla and sugar. Lower the heat and add the remaining milk. With a spatula, stir and scrape the sides to keep from scorching until hot. Pour into 2 cups.

We like to top them with foamed soy milk but whipped cream or marshmallows work great too. Sprinkle some chopped chocolate on top.
