4cupswhole milk1 liter. 1% also works.
5tbspsugaror to taste
6-7tbspunsweetened cocoa powderor to taste
zest of one orange
Add a cup of milk to a saucepan, over medium heat. Add in unsweetened cocoa powder, sugar, zest of one orange, cinnamon and a pinch of salt. Give it a stir, and once it starts to simmer and rise, add in the rest of the milk. Serve warm.
Taste, do you find it too bitter? Add in a little more sugar. Too sweet? - more unsweetened cocoa powder. If you find it too flavorful and rich - more milk. I have it more bitter (about 7 tbsp) when I add sweet toppings like marshmallows.
Strain it through a sieve before you pour it into cups to avoid drinking the zest!
