HOMEMADE HOT CHOCOLATE MIX
3 ounces unsweetened chocolate
½ cup water
pinch of salt
1 cup sugar
½ teaspoon vanilla extract
1 cup of skim milk INSTEAD of heavy cream
dash of cinnamon (optional)
In a heavy saucepan or in the top of a double boiler, combine the chocolate and water over low heat, whisking occasionally until smooth.
Add a pinch of salt and sugar and continue to cook and stir over low heat until the sugar dissolves, 3 to 4 minutes.
In a bowl, whip together the skim milk, vanilla and cinnamon. Store this mix in a covered container. It will keep up to 5 days in the refrigerator. This mix makes about 15 cups depending on how you use it.
In a small saucepan over medium heat, warm 1 cup skim milk and pour into a mug. You can also warm the milk in a microwave oven. Stir in 2 tablespoons of hot chocolate mix.
