Hot Cocoa for Two

What could be better than sitting by the fire with someone special and enjoying a good cup of hot cocoa?
This is the best hot cocoa I have ever had. My own recipe.
Hot Cocoa for Two

Ingredients

2 cups milk (whole milk is best)
2 or 3 Tbsp sugar, depends on the people
2 Tbsp unsweetened cocoa powder (Scharffen Berger 99% or equivalent)
1 Tsp Vanilla extract
¼ Tsp Almond extract

Directions

Heat the milk on medium low.
Add the sugar and cocoa while still cold.
It will take a lot of stirring; cocoa doesn’t want to mix with the milk. Stir constantly
When warm, add the extracts.
When hot, pour into heated mugs and enjoy!

Notes

Alternative: Instead of the extracts, try ¼ teaspoon of ground cinnamon and 1/8 teaspoon of nutmeg and add right away. Similar to Ibarra.
The mugs I use are more than a cup, so I use the mugs to measure the milk. Do not completely fill them.

Cook Time: 5 minutes
Number of Servings: 2
Yield: 2 cups
Style: American, West Coast
