French Drinking Chocolate

What you need: 

5 tablespoons cocoa powder
2 teaspoons cornstarch
1 cup warm water, divided
4 tablespoons sugar
1 cup nondairy creamer (I use soy)
1 teaspoon vanilla, almond, or orange extract, optional

What you do: 

1. Combine cocoa powder, cornstarch, sugar, and 1/2 cup warm water in a small saucepan to form a smooth paste.
2. Add remaining water and creamer to the saucepan.
3. Warm over medium high, stirring frequently, heat until mixture comes to a boil. Remove from heat and add any extracts. Enjoy!!
For a less rich version, substitute nondairy milk for creamer.

Delish!  Seriously this is really good.  The cornflour gives it a rich velvety texture, that makes it taste like what I would imagine proper French hot chocolate would taste like! Oh la la!  ;D

PS I used soy milk as I've never heard of soy creamer in the UK and it was still great!

Wow, this was awesome and I totally managed to screw it up even....but it was super chocolate-y and oh so satisfying.  I accidentally added way too much cornstarch, so it was thick....like, eat with a spoon thick....but fab nonetheless!  I can't wait to make it again the right way!

I really liked this!  The cornstarch really makes it a great consistency.  I made some changes to make it a little lighter:  vanilla soymilk, and half the amount of sugar + stevia.  I also used almond extract.  And topped it off with soy whip!  Thanks for the recipe.  :)

This was really good!  I added somewhere in between 2tsp and 2Tbsp cornstarch and it was just the right thickness.  Next time I plan to add a little alcohol to make it a dessert.

Typo- Please use 2 tsp instead of 2 Tbsp cornstarch.  Sorry!

(note: recipe has been corrected!)
