Lactose-Free Hot Cocoa Recipe

UPDATED RECIPE DECEMBER 2013

Lately all I've wanted is a cup of hot cocoa. As you know, I'm not a recipe person, more of an intuitive cook. So for this one, adapt and play as desired.

Lactose-Free Hot Cocoa 

1 T Enjoy Life chocolate chips (or another allergen-friendly chip like Divvies)
1 t vanilla (I use Nielsen Massey, nut-free and GF)
1 t raw, organic brown sugar (optional)
1 mugful 2% Lactaid milk (or any milk alternative)

Melt chocolate over low flame with 1 T of milk, sugar (if using) and vanilla to create a slurry. Once all ingredients are incorporated add the rest of the milk and heat through.

If you have some allergen free marshmallows like the coco ones from Jake Bakes or from Allergy Grocer or some Ricemellow Creme from Suzanne’s Specialties by all means, gild that lily!
