Most recipes for hot cocoa include [[milk]], cocoa and [[sugar]]. Some also include liquors or [[spice]]s. Some additions to hot cocoa are [[vanilla]], [[cinnamon]], chili powder, Bailey's Irish Cream, Kahlua, creme de cacao, whiskey or rum. Instead of using cocoa, you can use melted chocolate. You can substitute cream instead of milk, or water or soy milk. Instead of sugar, you can use another sweetener, including brown sugar, maple syrup or honey. Several recipes include [[salt]], but I think that's totally unnecessary.

* 0-3 teaspoons of sugar (varies by taste)
Mix three tablespoons of cocoa into about a quarter cup of milk. Slowly heat the other 3/4 cup of milk in a saucepan on the [[stove]]. Be careful not to let it boil or scorch. It helps to stir it while it's heating. If it forms a "skin", do not scrape it off the sides or bottom, and skim any layer of "skin" or thin solid layer on top off before pouring or stirring. Stir in the last quarter with the cocoa. Add sugar to taste. Enjoy!
