Hot Chocolate

Hot Chocolate

Serves: 1


Milk – 1 cup
Unsweetened cocoa powder – 2 tbsp
Brown Sugar – 2 tbsp
Salt – a pinch
Vanilla extract – 1/4 tsp


  • In a mug, mix cocoa powder, sugar and salt
  • In a bowl, heat milk till it reaches desired temperature or heat in microwave for 1.5 minutes
  • Pour the milk into the mug containing cocoa mixture
  • Stir till it’s well mixed 
  • Add the vanilla extract and stir again
  • Serve hot!

– You can use white sugar instead of brown sugar
– Sift the cocoa powder before adding to the mug as it prevents lumps after adding milk
– If you still get lumps after stirring in the milk, pass it through a strainer before serving
– You could even add a 1/4 teaspoon of instant coffee powder to enhance the chocolate flavor
