Rich Dark Hot Cocoa
The end result is creamy, and thick. I love the body this cocoa has, and it's a satisfying snack that soothes a chocolate craving.
- 1 qt
- organic skim milk
- 6 Tbsp
- granulated sugar
- 4 Tbsp
- hershey's special dark cocoa powder
- 2 Tbsp
- 1 Tbsp
- coconut oil
- 1 tsp
- pure vanilla extract
- 1/4 tsp
- sea salt
Whisking constantly, add cocoa powder, sugar and sea salt.
Continue whisking - bring the mixture up to a moderate bubble, and turn off heat, but leave pot on the burner and continue cooking and stirring.
The cocoa will have thickened. Add the vanilla and mix well. Taste the mixture & adjust sugar if needed.
To serve, I pour the mixture into a one-quart Pyrex measuring cup to facilitate pouring.
Top with marshmallows or whipped cream, if desired.
