Italian Hot Chocolate

If you have never had the pleasure of Italian Hot Chocolate you are missing out! DO you like pudding? Do you like Hot Chocolate? Well combine the two together and you have it. It is thick and you can eat it with a spoon if you want. It is heaven in a cup. Look at these two guys if you don't believe me.

Italian Hot Chocolate

Stir together in a pan, BEFORE you turn the heat on.

1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa
1/2 cup sugar
2 tsp. cornstarch

Over low heat whisk in:
1/2 cup water

Continue to stir and add:
1 1/2 cups milk
1 tsp vanilla

Cook and stir constantly over med-low heat for about 10 minutes until it is thick enough to coat a spoon.

Serve and enjoy.

Tips: 2% or whole milk work best. YOu could also kick it up a notch and use 1/2 and 1/2 in place of the milk or part of the milk. We have also made it with Soy Milk or other milk alternatives and it turned out great.
