Honey Hot Cocoa

For those of you who have given up white sugar a friend of mine came up with a good hot cocoa alternative! This recipe is from my dear friend E.M. (not sure if she wants her first name posted, so I'm posting her initials for now). I am planning on making some later this evening!

Honey Hot Cocoa
1/2+ cup honey (I add a bit more because I like mine sweeter)
1/2 cup water
1/2 cup cocoa
*Heat in a pan for 5 minutes or until it turns into a syrup.

5+ cups milk (to your preference - I like mine more milky)
*Add this to the syrup mixture and heat through.

tsp vanilla extract
*Remove from heat and add this lovely addtion. Serve hot or refridgerate and serve cold. :)

Edited 1/12/09 for honey and milk quantity. :-)
