hot cocoa - homemade :)

this might be good for some this time of year:


1/4 cup water
2 tablespoons cocoa
2 tablespoons granulated sugar
1 1/2 cups milk
1/4 tsp vanilla extract

Whipped cream

1. combine water, cocoa, and sugar in a 16 ounce microwave safe pitcher, such as a 2 cup glass measuring cup. Nuke the mixture on high for 30 seconds or until hot. Stir well to create chocolate syrup.

2.. Add milk to the chocolate syrup and microwave the mixture for 1 to 1 1/2 minutes or until hot. Add vanilla extract and pour drink into a 16 ounce coffee mug. Serve with whipped cream on top

Makes one 16 ounce serving

let me know if you like it :)

MMMmmm... that would've been great this past weekend when it was all snowy here. Also a variation would be Frozen Hot Chocolate.

4 squares BAKER'S Semi-Sweet Baking Chocolate, melted
1-1/2 cups milk, divided
2 Tbsp. sugar
2 cups ice cubes
1 cup COOL WHIP or COOL WHIP French Vanilla Whipped Topping, unthawed
1 tsp. vanilla

PLACE chocolate, 1/2 cup of the milk and the sugar in blender container; cover. Blend on high speed until well blended.

ADD remaining 1 cup milk, the ice, frozen whipped topping and vanilla; cover. Blend on high speed until smooth.

SERVE immediately.

ooooo, I love hot chocolate. I love different versions! Okay, so, this is all I do with mine.
Heat milk, add cocoa and powdered sugar. Sorry, I don't measure, I just go by taste.
