Cioccolata calda (Hot chocolate)
2 tablespoons of good quality cocoa 1 – 2 tablespoons sugar
1 tablespoon cornstarch
8 ounces milk (skim is ok!)
In a saucepan, mix the cocoa, sugar and corn ﬂour together very well. Pour in a little milk and mix well, add more milk, and mix – a little at a time.
Turn on the heat and gently heat until it starts to boil.
Remove from heat, continue stirring – it will be thickened and smooth!
Top with whipped topping if desired!
In a microwave safe bowl (prefer a 4 cup liquid measuring cup). Mix as described above, and microwave in 30 second increments, stirring each time (watch – do not let boil over!) Contributed by Jeanne Florini for Ciao St. Louis November 26, 2017
