    this was really easy to make but I'll probably add more cocoa and sugar because it tasted mostly like warm milk

    This tasted like hot milk w/ some other things added in. There is not near enough cocoa, or anything else. Ended up starting over & I added 2 tbs of cocoa, and 1 tbs of sugar. Omitted the vanilla. Perhaps it is a typo? 1 tsp of cocoa does not make any difference to a cup of milk besides change the color in my opinion. Sorry.
