This hot chocolate recipe trumps all others in my opinion! It is the cocoa that Bri, myself and the rest of our siblings grew up on! It's such an easy recipe, so put the swiss miss away my friends and try it! I made it on our first real snowfall day and it really hit the spot!:)
2 cans evaporated milk
1/4-1/2 cup dry, unsweetened cocoa(to your tastes)
1/2-1 cup granulated sugar(to your tastes)
First start warming the milk and evaporated milk over medium heat, stirring occasionally so the bottom doesn't burn. Then add the cocoa powder and stir well to dissolve. Add the sugar last and to your tastes. Heat through until nice and steamy hot!
Whip a pint of heavy cream just until you have stiff peaks. Add 2-3 tablespoons of granulated sugar and whip just until incorporated. Serve hot chocolate with a generous helping of the fresh, lightly sweetened whipped cream!
