  • 1 cup milk per serving
  • 3 tablespoons sugar per serving
  • 2 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa per serving
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt per serving
  • optional: flavoring like coffee, vanilla extract, orange zest, crème de menthe, nutmeg or chipotle powder
  • optional: whipped cream

Warm milk slowly over a medium heat. When the milk is close to scalding, turn down to low. If it ever appears in danger of boiling, remove it from the heat.

Add in the sugar and cocoa together, and stir. Add in the salt, and any other flavoring.

Simmer a couple minutes.

Serve. Possibly with whipped cream. Ignore the people who want you to spoil it by adding marshmallows.

Preparation time: 20 minutes
