Mr. Steward's Favorite Hot Cocoa

READY IN: 15mins
Recipe by aspiring gourmet1

After experimenting with many different formulas for hot cocoa, I finally came up with one that my husband loves. It has more cocoa and less sugar than most recipes. A dash of salt and vanilla extract add extra flavor.

Ok, here's the rundown, lol. Used Splenda for the sugar, *dark* cocoa, fat free coffee creamer for most of the milk (for rich taste and body). Loved the touch of salt, it really added some depth. This was truly well enjoyed. :D
