Hot Chocolate

http://www.eatingwell.com/recipes/hot_chocolate.html

From EatingWell:  Fall 2003, The Essential EatingWell Cookbook (2004)

Our hot cocoa is rich and chocolaty without the overly sweet taste of some packaged mixes. We give it a luxurious froth with a whisk or blender—or use a cappuccino frother if you have one.

1 serving, 1 cup | Active Time: 5 minutes | Total Time: 5 minutes

Ingredients

Preparation

  1. Mix sugar, cocoa and 2 tablespoons cold milk in a mug until smooth. Heat the remaining milk in a small saucepan on the stovetop or in a 2-cup glass measure in the microwave until steaming hot but not boiling. Stir in the cocoa mixture and vanilla.
  2. To froth the hot chocolate, whirl a whisk in it by rubbing your hands back and forth. (Alternatively, pour the hot chocolate into a blender, cover with the lid and a kitchen towel and blend until frothy.) Pour it back into the mug and sprinkle with cinnamon.
