Best Homemade Hot Chocolate

I have been searching high and low for the perfect homemade hot chocolate recipe, especially just for one serving. Whenever I'm craving it, I'm almost always in my pj's, and going to the store is out of the question. I found a great recipe online, and had to tweak it just a little bit. Here's the original recipe. And my tweaks:

1. Mix cocoa, sugar, and water in a medium saucepan at a very low heat, somewhere between 1 and 2. Make sure you are stirring constantly at this point. It will become very thick.
2. After about 2 minutes, add the milk and flavoring of choice.
I chose hazelnut, and it was so yummy! You could use mint, almond, strawberry, coconut (totally want to try this one!), peppermint, vanilla, or pretty much anything. Only use a dash though, it can get strong quickly!
3. Turn the heat up to about 5-6, and heat it up until you are in love with the temperature. :)
4. Enjoy your homemade hot chocolate!

As easy as can be? Heck yeah. I can't wait for winter to try all of these flavors!
