Hot Sweet and Creamy Cocoa!

READY IN: 12mins
Recipe by Sharon123

This is a rich version of cocoa and what a treat it makes! In the 18th century Europeans married milk with chocolate and sugar. Soon after, it became a very popular after dinner drink! Adding a pinch of cayenne gives it a little spice too! Adapted from Country Living magazine.
