Rich Hot Chocolate

When you drink this hot chocolate, you'll feel like you are drinking a chocolate bar.

Rich Hot Chocolate

 Per person mix in a sauce pan over medium heat:

1 cup whole milk
1 oz  (or a scant ¼ cup) good chocolate chips, semisweet or bittersweet, or chopped chocolate
1 T brown sugar, or less (this is too sweet for me)
1 T cocoa, preferably Dutch processed

Place ingredients in a saucepan over medium heat; stir occasionally until smooth and steaming.  Mix in the flavoring of your choice. I use extracts or oils, such as almond, orange, mint, cinnamon, or vanilla, or powdered chile (not chili powder). Since everyone usually wants a different flavor, I add the flavoring to the mugs not the saucepan. I use about ¼ teas extract per serving or a few drops of oils.  You can always add more. For a special treat float a dollop of whipped cream on top.
