Extra Creamy Hot Chocolate!

When the weather turns cold, I really enjoy a nice cup of cream hot chocolate!  I like my hot chocolate rich and decadent and even though I can drink the stuff you make from an envelope or a pod, I really like to make it homemade.   Homemade, meaning on the stove top with real cocoa and real milk!  

 My mother always made her hot chocolate from scratch, on the stove with cocoa, sugar and milk and it was always so good.  This recipe takes that concept and kicks it up to a whole new decadent level.  If you are thinking, this must be a lot of trouble, it's really not.

Here is what you will need::

1  (14 oz.) can of sweetened condensed milk
1/3 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1 tsp. vanilla flavoring
pinch of salt
1 cup white chocolate chips
4 cups milk  (you can use whole milk or 2%

mini marshmallows
whipped cream

Place a large sauce pan on the stove top over medium heat.   Add the sweetened condensed milk which is like Eagle Brand, not evaporated milk,  and the 1/3 cup cocoa powder.    Add 1 tsp. vanilla and a pinch of salt and whisk until it's well blended and any little clumps are gone.

Add the 1 cup white chocolate chips and the 4 cups of milk.   Stirring continuously starting bringing it up to a boil.  You start to see small bubbles forming on the top.  As it begins to roll to a full boil, turn the heat to low or off.   BE CAREFUL, because if your pan is not large enough this can boil over.  

After you bring it to a boil and then turn the heat down and let it simmer a few minutes, it will start to thicken up a little, but not too much!!!   Now it's ready to pour!

I like to top it with mini chocolate chips and whipped cream!   This makes about 4 nice size cups of hot chocolate!!!  If you don't use it all, you can pour it in a jar and reheat it the next day for another treat!!!   

 This is decadent and delicious!!!  Enjoy!!!
