Simple and delicious home-made hot chocolate. Great with homemade biscuits on a cold morning.

This is a favorite hot chocolate recipe now--it's simple, but very satisfying,and handy when my daughter's Girl Scout troop is over or other company. The only slight change I make is to decrease the amount of vanilla by a very little. It's especially delicious with marshmallows and a dash of cinnamon. It can be halved easily too. Thanks for sharing a keeper!
