REAL Hot Chocolate

2 1/2 tablespoons sugar

4 1/2 teaspoons unsweetened cocoa powder, preferably Dutch process

1 1/2 cup milk,

1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract

Sprinkle of ground cinnamon

Mix sugar, cocoa and 2 tablespoons cold milk in a mug until smooth. Heat the remaining milk in a small saucepan on the stovetop or in a glass-measuring cup in the microwave until steaming hot but not boiling. Stir in the cocoa mixture and vanilla.

To froth the hot chocolate without a frothier, whirl a whisk in it by rubbing your hands back and forth. Pour it back into the mug and sprinkle with cinnamon.
