Simple Homemade Hot Chocolate

Have you seen the movie Chocolat? It was Vianne's hot chocolate that inspired this thick creamy drink. "Instant" hot chocolate won't even taste like chocolate anymore! And it's so simple!!

Update: Since discovering this tasty treat, I've found an easier, tastier way! And the new way can make chocolate milk too... visit that posting over here.

Simple Homemade Hot Chocolate

4 heaping T. cocoa powder
8 heaping T. white sugar
16 oz. milk, divided

  1. Mix cocoa and sugar together in a med. saucepan. Add 1/2 the milk, and whisk thoroughly until all the powder is absorbed, then add remaining milk.
  2. Heat over med/low heat, whisking about every 1 min, scraping the bottom and corners well, until tiny bubbles just break the surface.
  3. Serve in heavy mugs with mini-marshmallows or whipped cream.
