unsweetened cocoa powder
Combine chocolate pieces, cocoa powder, sugar and vanilla in pan. Stir in 1/4 cup milk to make paste (bittersweet chocolate will still be in chunks but cocoa should be disssolved in liquid). Add remaining 1 1/4 cups milk and stir well. Bring to simmer over medium heat, stirring frequently, until chocolate is melted, sugar completely dissolved and mixture is very hot. Serve in mug.
Makes 1 to 2 mugs.
