Review This Recipe
I like using heavy cream or half and half to make my cocoa richer. Sometimes it's a matter of practice, but in this case using half milk and half cream or half and half is much better. It is calorically higher, but well worth it. Just make sure to stir well and not let it boil so you don't end up with the "skin" on the surface. Enjoy!
