Perfect Hot Chocolate

Today we went for a 3 and a half mile walk in 23 degree weather. When we got home we wanted hot chocolate. So I made some. This recipe makes two servings.

I put 2 1/2 cups of milk into a saucepan and turned it onto low heat. Then I put 2 TBS cocoa powder, 1 TBS sugar and 1TBS brown sugar, 1/2 tsp vanilla extract, and a little bit of hot water into one of the cups and stirred it till it was all dissolved. Then I put the chocolate mixture into the milk. Then turned the heat up to medium and whisked the whole thing until it was hot. Whisking it froths it up a little bit and keeps it from boiling over. If you want it to be even more rich, you could use a combination of milk and cream or milk and half and half. If you want it super sweet, use more sugar.
