Homemade Hot Chocolate

I vow to never buy instant again!

We've been slammed with snow again. So much so, that both myself and my husband were told no work today! I felt like a little kid with school being canceled.

After Paul went out to shovel for the final time tonight, I decided I would make hot chocolate from scratch, since I didn't have any instant.

A quick google seach and here it is! So easy and so good. Of course i added a shot of Godiva Liqour to give an extra little warmth ;)

Homemade Hot Chocolate

4 Servings
1/3 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
3/4 cup white sugar
1 pinch salt
1/3 cup boiling water
3 1/2 cups milk
3/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 cup half-and-half cream
1. Combine the cocoa, sugar and pinch of salt in a saucepan. Blend in the boiling water. Bring this mixture to an easy boil while you stir. Simmer and stir for about 2 minutes. Watch that it doesn't scorch. Stir in 3 1/2 cups of milk and heat until very hot, but do not boil! Remove from heat and add vanilla. Divide between 4 mugs. Add the cream to the mugs of cocoa to cool it to drinking temperature.
