Starbucks Style Hot Chocolate

Can you believe we still have a whole month of winter left? I feel like it has lasted all year. Even though I am counting down the days to nice, warm weather, I can still enjoy the simple pleasures winter brings, like rich hot chocolate.

Are you a Starbucks fan, but can't afford the bill every time you are craving their sugary goodness? Well, I found a recipe that nearly beats Starbucks famous hot chocolate. Add a little peppermint or caramel to this and you'll never pay that $3-4 price again.

Recipe from: Instructables.com

Here's what you need:
1/2 cup water
4 Tbs cocoa powder
4 Tbs sugar
3 cups milk
2 tsp vanilla extract

Here's what you do:
-Combine water, cocoa, and sugar in a saucepan. Heat on medium-high and stir until the mixture starts to create steam, but doesn't boil yet.
-Add milk, then vanilla to the pan and stir until everything is mixed and the milk is close to boiling.
-Serve in your favorite mug topped with a generous serving of whipped cream.

Enjoy your last few weeks of winter!
