Sinful Hot Chocolate

READY IN: 5mins
Recipe by brew3431

Rich, delicious cocoa, perfect for winter. Beats the instant stuff, and takes the same amount of time. Add a dollop of whipped cream, some spices like cinnamon or real vanilla, or a shot of your favorite liquor ( I like bailey's).

Just heavenly and a breeze to make. I'm giving this recipe 4 stars instead of 5 b/c 3 minutes was way too long to heat this in the microwave. The milk boiled and spilled over. Next time, I'll heat for 2 minutes and whisk. I used 3 squares of Ghirardelli's 72% cacao Twilight Delight, 8 oz. of milk and 1 tablespoon sugar. Delightful. Thanks for posting!
