Homemade Hot Chocolate

Hot Chocolate

1 cup half-n-half or skim milk 
1 tablespoon cocoa
2 teaspoons sugar (or more!)

Drop a peppermint candy in the cup before serving. 

Or use a candy cane as a stirrer.  I called that a Peppermint Patty.

Or add a pinch of cinnamon for a taste of Mexico.

Heat milk in microwave.
Add cocoa & sugar.

Rocket yourself to warmer places.
P.S. Use skim milk & Splenda if you're watching your calories or diabetic. 

I forget how much I love homemade hot cocoa. I was looking in the cupboard the other day and I have two containers of cocoa. With the weather being so cold outside, I thought, "why don't I make Gene a cup of cocoa!"  I don't know if I've ever made him the homemade stuff before but I think he's hooked.  I don't like that packaged stuff you add to water.  Yuck.  Trust me. If you try this recipe, you'll never go back to watered down hot chocolate again, ever.  Stay warm people!!!!
