Bilbo's Hot Cocoa

I thought of this recipe when I was looking at a cookbook. So I took the recipe and added my own amounts and ingredients.

1/2 cup of cocoa powder
1/2 cup of water
3/4 cup of sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/4 teaspoon salt
4 cups of milk
1 generous shake of ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon almond extract

Simmer all ingredients except milk and vanilla in a medium/small saucepan for 3-5 minutes until lumps are dissolved. Add milk to ingredients. Stir and bring heat to a low simmer.

To enhance the flavor, add vanilla just before serving. As a garnish - add some whipped cream and a shaved piece of chocolate. Enjoy!
