1/2 c sugar
1 T cocoa powder
2 1/3 c milk*, separated
1. In a medium saucepan, combine sugar and cocoa powder; whisk in 1/3 cup milk (sometimes I use half & half or heavy whipping cream if I have it in stock).
2. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat; boil for about a minute or two.
3. Take off the burner and stir in remaining 2 cups milk [this is when I pour it for my toddler]; then place back on burner and warm it up to the temperature you'd like.
*The percentage of milk you use will affect the creaminess of the hot chocolate. I mainly use 1% because that's what we buy and it works great for us.
