1 very large mug's worth of milk. I think mine are more than 16 oz. As long as you are going for hot cocoa, you may as well go for broke.

In small saucepan:

3 heaping teaspoons of cocoa powder
3 teaspoons of sugar
Just enough milk to get it all wet.

Whisk (with mini-whisk or fork) over medium heat to get it to all meld together into perfect chocolate goo.

Whisk in:
2 hefty shakes cinnamon
1 gentle shake of chili powder

The rest of the milk.

Keep stirring until desired heat; do not let it boil.

Optional: a dash of salt (I don't use it)
Or instead of cinnamon and chili powder use just cinnamon, or a light pinch of pumpkin pie seasoning. Or ginger and orange zest/flavoring (without the cinnamon).

Mmmmm. But first, we go out to play in the snow.
