tablespoons unsweetened baking cocoa

In 2-quart saucepan, mix sugar and cocoa. Stir in milk and half-and-half until blended. Cook and stir over medium heat until thoroughly heated (do not boil). Remove from heat.

Unsweetened cocoa is the secret to the rich chocolate flavor in this healthier version. And the fat-free half-and-half provides texture and richness without adding any fat.
You can easily substitute 1 1/2 ounces of chopped bittersweet or dark chocolate for the chocolate chips.
Serve the hot chocolate with cinnamon or peppermint sticks for stirring. Or make this cocoa extra indulgent by drizzling caramel ice cream topping on the inside of each cup before adding the hot chocolate.
