Creamy Hot Chocolate

December 12, 2013

Hot chocolate is one of those indulgences I try to reserve for the winter months, so I almost never drink it any other time of the year. And now that I have a little girl to share it with, I definitely indulge far more often than I used to. There's something precious and nostalgic about wrapping my hands around the warm mug, breathing in the aroma of chocolate and whipped cream, and taking that first uncertain sip. It's one of my favorite ways to spend time with my special girl, so when time permits I skip the powdered mix and make it from scratch.

Creamy Hot Chocolate
½ can of sweetened condensed milk
¼ cup unsweetened cocoa powder
½ teaspoon vanilla extract
pinch of salt
3¼ cups milk (or water)

In a saucepan over medium heat, combine sweetened condensed milk, cocoa powder, vanilla and salt and stir until well blended. Slowly add milk and continue stirring until heated through, but not boiling. This recipe makes about 4 servings for you and your special someone to enjoy.
