I'm really partial to the show Good Eats on the Food network... If you aren't an Alton Brown fan yet, you should be! Anyway, his recipe for hot cocoa is fantastic, and you can find it here: http://tinyurl.com/3v84v

Thanks for this link, I wanted to make some vegan hot chocolate for my daughter. With this recipe, and my powdered soymilk, I can!

I know this recipe. It's a little tricky not to make it lumpy, though. I prefer mixing the cocoa with syrup rather than sugar, and then adding hot milk. Much more fool-proof. Maple syrup actually works really well.
