Microwaveable Hot Cocoa (Single Serving)

READY IN: 2mins
Recipe by Chrissy Sweettooth

I modified the recipe from a can of cocoa powder. You can use 3 packets of Equal if you don't want to use sugar.

This was a nice treat on a frosty, cold morning. Even though I used unsweetened cocoa powder, I still decided to scale back the sugar to just 1 tablespoon, and that worked out just fine. I think any more sugar would have overpowered the vanilla flavor. It's a good recipe to have for those occasions when you want just one cup of hot cocoa, and quickly. Thanks for sharing your recipe, Chrissy Sweettooth. Made for New Kids On The Block tag game.
