Easy Hot Chocolate Recipe
The easy rule of thumb is:
1 tbsp of cocoa powder for every 1 cup of milk, plus a tsp of sugar for sweetness
3 tbsp cocoa powder
3 cups of whole milk
3 tsp sugar
Mix the cocoa powder and half a cup of water in a medium size pot to create a paste, slowly heat over a medium-high heat.
Once the lumps are removed, add milk and bring to a simmer.
Whisk in sugar in until mixture is smooth and creamy.
Divide hot chocolate amongst four mugs, and top with whipped cream if you feel like it and a dusting of cocoa powder.
Serve with warm chocolate cookies.
