One Christmas, my mom's dear friend Mrs. Swartz had my brother over to make Christmas cookies.

I liked this cocoa because the coconut flavor is subtle and the drink isn't overly sweet.

  • 1 1/2 cups coconut milk
  • 1 1/2 cups milk (I used 2%.)
  • 5 ounces dark chocolate, coarsely chopped or broken in pieces (I used the cheapest bar of dark chocolate I could find, Cadbury. I had no complaints!)

Mix coconut milk and milk in a small pot over low heat. Cook until simmering, about 3 to 5 minutes.

With the heat still on low, add in chocolate and stir until it’s melted and fully incorporated with the milk. Remove from heat, ladle into cups, and serve immediately.

Makes 4.
