DIRECTIONS

  • ***DO NOT TURN ON FIRE UNTIL IT SAYS SO***.
  • Put 2 tablespoons chocolate chips plus 1/2 tsp sugar into a small saucepan.
  • Pour the milk into a 2-cup measuring cup until it reaches the 1 1/2 cup line.
  • Slowly pour the milk into the saucepan.
  • Add vanilla extract.
  • Put the pan on the stove and turn heat to medium.
  • Stir slowly (important!) with a wooden spoon as the milk heats up. the chocolate chips will slowly begin to melt. (It takes about 5 minutes to reach the right temperature. keep stirring constantly and be patient, DO NOT LET IT BOIL!).
  • It will be brown all the way through and the chips will be melted and milk hot when it is ready.
  • When it's ready take the cocoa off the stove and slowly pour it into 1 or 2 mugs.
  • Serve plain, or with a little whipped cream (recipe follows) or cinnamon on top.
  • ***WHIPPED CREAM***.
  • Get out large bowl and a whisk.
  • Put the cream, vanilla, and powdered sugar in a bowl. Beat strongly but not too fast with a whisk. It's best to take turns with someone, so your arms won't get tired.
  • When it gets nice and puffy but is still soft, it's ready.
  • It can keep in a covered container in the refrigerator, it keeps up to 2 days. but the sooner you use it, the better.
