I made this today, experimenting, and it came out awesome, so I thought I’d post it. Is it hot chocolate or cocoa? All I know is that it’s good. Sorry, no pictures yet, I just wanted to get it down. I will update the post with pictures the next time I make it. I’m sure you can substitute two additional cups of milk for half and half.
I usually make coffee first thing in the morning, put it in a large thermos, sweeten it with stevia and add half and half. On a whim, after my first cup of cocoa (I like calling hot chocolate cocoa), I mixed the two, half coffee from my thermos and half cocoa. Can you say, “INCREDIBLE?!”
It makes 4 – 5 servings.
2 cups whole milk
2 cups half and half
6 oz semi sweet chocolate
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 tbs blue agave (or sweetener of your choice)
- Warm the milk with half and half on medium heat.
- Break up the chocolate and add in, stirring constantly. As the chocolate and dairy combine, switch to a whisk.
- Add vanilla and taste. Add sweetener.
- Taste and serve.
