Dark Hot Chocolate

It’s been a bad day ever since yesterday since I received a bad news, but not gonna share it here though =p I’ll be just fine.. So, in order to compensate with what has been bugging me and made my condition worse, I decided to make dark hot chocolate.. Considering that it is raining, that would be the best and suited drink to accompany me during these troubled times.

I went to my fridge to find a carton of SKIM milk (it says 99.9% less fat) then went down to the kitchen to add unsweetened cocoa powder, some sugar and a small pinch of salt(really small, like 10 crystals of salt). Below is the complete recipe.

1 glass of milk (250 ml)

1 tablespoon of unsweetened cocoa powder

1 tablespoon of hot/boiling water

1 1/2 tablespoon of sugar

1/2 teaspoon of vanilla extract (optional)

  1. Heat the milk in the microwave for about 1 minute or so.
  2. Mix the cocoa powder and water in a saucepan.
  3. Pour the warm milk to the cocoa and water mixture. Stir well and put on heat.
  4. Add the sugar and wait for the milk to come to a rolling boil or until you can see fumes coming out
  5. Drop vanilla extract in you glass and pour hot chocolate to the glass.Mix well
  6. Enjoy!
