Hot Chocolate 

Rich thick hot chocolate. Easy to make and very rewarding.

Bring to a boil:
1 1/2 c water

Whisk in:
1/2 c unsweetened cocoa powder
1/2 c sugar (washed raw sugar is good)
6 oz dark chocolate bar broken in pieces
1/4 c unsalted butter
Stir with a scraper frequently and when it is bubbling regularly adjust heat down to a very gentle bubble. Cook stirring occasionally about 15 minutes. Taste during this time as the chocolate matures from a starchy flavor to rich a creamy thick sauce!

Stir in:
8 c milk
and heat until warm.

Add a little vanilla if you remember and maybe a sprinkle of salt too.
