Just made this yesterday morning when I realized I had no packaged hot cocoa. Better anyway! Yum!

A classic made for the microwave and in a single serving too. I enjoy this recipe frequently. I also use Splenda rather than sugar and I use 1/2 tsp more vanilla and a dash of cinnamon. Great for those chocolate cravings.
