Needed an easy yet delicious cocoa recipe that utilized ingredients on hand when the kids ask for hot chocolate and I do not have powdered mixes on hand. This recipe was exactly that... nothing fancy, just basic tasty hot chocolate in a pinch. I frothed some extra milk on my espresso machine and garnished with crushed peppermint. My son descried it as "brilliant."
