"Perfectly Chocolate" Hot Cocoa

Tired of the routine coffee, tea and milk!! Want to try something different, then you must go for this drink!! Kids would just love it. Cocoa powder has more antioxidants, which makes it a healthy boost for kids. So you should definetely try it out.

You will need:

  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 1-2 teaspoons HERSHEY'S unsweetened Cocoa
  • Dash salt (a pinch, optional)
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
Directions:
  • Mix sugar, cocoa and salt in large mug.
  • Heat milk in a vessel on a medium flame and bring it to boil.
  • Alternatively you can also heat milk in microwave at 1-1/2 minutes or until hot.
  • Gradually add hot milk to cocoa mixture in mug, stirring until well blended.
  • Stir in vanilla. 1 serving.

Variations:

Rich and Adult: Increase cocoa to 2 tablespoons; follow recipe above.

Lower Fat: Use nonfat milk; follow recipe above.

Sugar Free: Omit sugar. Combine cocoa and salt. Proceed as above, using nonfat milk. Stir in vanilla and sugar substitute with sweetening equivalence of 2 tablespoons sugar.

Have a nice HOT cocoa!!!!!!!

This hot cocoa is on its way to the event For the Love of Chocolate hosted by Poornima.
