4 cups milk
1/2 cup sugar
1/4 cup cocoa powder
1/4 tsp salt
1 Tbsp vanilla
* optional * 1/4 cup corn starch (to make into drinking chocolate)
Put all ingredients into a pot over Medium to medium/high heat. Whisk forever until milk reaches desired temperature. My stove takes about 12 minutes.
DO NOT STOP WHISKING OR MILK COULD SCORCH! Then you’ll have to start again
For “drinking chocolate” consistency (like in Europe) whisk with corn starch until it begins to feel a little thick. If you over thicken, you can add milk to thin. If you want a more authentic drinking chocolate, use half cream, half milk.
