I love every type of hot chocolate imaginable. I am lucky to live in a city with tons of special little hot chocolate places. Since I like to lighten things up this is my recipe that will make you next mug of steamy hot chocolate completely guiltless.
2 Tbs Coco Powder ( Hershey makes a great one)
1 – 2 Tbs Any Sugar
2 Cups Water
1/4 Cup Skim or Almond Milk
1/2 tsp Salt
1 tsp Vanilla
* Cinnamon or Spice Optional
** marshmallow, whip, peep or candy cain for garnish
Place everything in a small pot and whisk well. Bring mixture to a boil and lower to a simmer. Simmer uncovered for about 15 minutes whisking frequently. Cook until thickness you desire is reached. Serve with any topping you want. I love using festive peep for the holidays.
