1 cup non-dairy milk (we used hazelnut but for extra creamy texture, try coconut milk)
1 tbsp cacao powder
1-2 squares of dark chocolate (85% or 90% cacao content for less added sugar)
1 tsp vanilla extract
Heat 1 cup of non-dairy milk in a small saucepan. Whisk 1 tbsp of cacao powder in the hot milk and bring it to a boil. Then add vanilla extract and let it simmer for a few minutes on low heat. Pour into a cup and add 1-2 squares of dark chocolate. Stir and enjoy!
