Homemade Hot Chocolate

Last night Mark was feeling snack-y, and we thought, what's better than hot chocolate on a cold evening filled with Alias? {yes, the old but still incredibly enjoyable Jennifer Garner show} Nothing! So I googled a recipe, changed it a bit and we got to work -

Serves 2 -

2 tablespoons and 2 teaspoons of unsweetened cocoa powder
1/4 cup (maybe slightly less) granulated sugar
Dash of salt
2 tablespoons and 2 teaspoons boiling water (we used our electric kettle)
1 cup milk
1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract

Put the first three ingredients in a small saucepan, add the boiling water and stir over medium-high heat until slightly boiling (careful not to let it scorch). Add in milk and stir continuously until your desired drinking temperature(don't let it boil), remove from heat and add vanilla - enjoy!

It was so delicious, maybe a tad sweet {but who doesn't like deliciously sweet hot chocolate!}. Also, half of that recipe is only 126 calories, so I didn't feel too bad about consuming it!

Happy Hot Chocolating!
