Smooth, Chocolatey, and perfect with toppings!
- ½ C. sugar
- ¼ C. baking cocoa (or melted chocolate)
- dash salt
- ⅓ C. hot water
- 4 C. milk
- ¾ tsp. vanilla extract
Begin by whisking the cocoa, sugar, and salt together in a medium-sized saucepan. Then add the water and bring to a boil while stirring constantly.
