Whilst browsing the web looking for a homemade hot chocolate recipe I came across several that were varitions on instant hot choclate. (You know, mix in a packet to which one adds hot water). Finding neither the ingredient list nor the volume of the recipe appealing I decided to make my own spin.
Getting rid of the extraneous ingredients I came up with this:
6 tbsp powdered sugar
3 tbsp cocoa
milk (or cream)
Combine the sugar and cocoa in a mug. Just cover with milk (or cream) and whisk into a paste. Top with boiled water. Whisk again to combine. Enjoy!
