Hot Cocoa- Single

This is easier than you think. And the taste...ohhhhh. Mixes can't duplicate this. My daughter's friend, Laura, called it, "Amazing."

2 T. sugar
1 T. cocoa powder
1 dash salt
1 c. boiling water
1/8 tsp. vanilla

* dash cinnamon, for sweet zing, OR
* dash Chinese 5 spice, for mellow warmth, OR
* dash chipotle powder, for pick-me-up heat (and great for colds, too)

Place sugar, cocoa, salt, and *optional spices, if desired, in mug. Add boiling water and stir until smooth. Add vanilla, and milk, if desired.

I just tried this, and it's good! You're right, much better than the mixes. I added some instant coffee to it. Yum!
