Made from scratch and ready in no time. This is my favorite recipe for homemade hot chocolate.
Combine in a mug 2 heaping teaspoons sugar, 1 heaping teaspoon cocoa powder, and a dash of salt. Add 2 teaspoons cold milk and stir until smooth.
Add 1 cup of milk and stir to combine. Microwave 90 seconds. Stir in 1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract if desired.
