Italian Style Hot Chocolate
1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa
2 cups milk or half milk-half water
Mix the cocoa, sugar and cornstarch together until thoroughly blended.
Add 1/2 cup liquid to a medium saucepan and set over low heat. Whisk in the cocoa mixture until thoroughly incorporated and no lumps remain. Add the rest of the liquid.
Cook, stirring constantly using whisk, over medium-low heat, until the mixture is thickened (it coats the back of a spoon), about ten minutes.
Make It Yours:
Once the cocoa has thickened, you can stir in a hint of additional flavorings before serving:
1/4 tsp of:
vanilla or almond extract
or a liquior such as Grand Marnier , Pepperrmint , Banana , Frangelco
Serve in tea cups for the unexpected factor. Dust each serving with cinnamon or nutmeg. A small almond cookie or biscotti on the side ...
*cornstarch will not clump like flour.Its smooth and tasteless.
