Iced Ghirardelli Cocoa

We both are self-confessed and helpless chocolate addicts. Sometimes when we go to departmental stores for grocery, I have to literally dissuade husband from shopping for Godiva's and Ghirardelli Cocoa powder's. But heart-to-heart we both love our beverage's topped with liberal helpings of cocoa and chocolate bits. Yesterday evening, hubby wanted to have something warm as it was raining very heavily in our county.

He promtly asked me to make some Ghirardelli Cocoa. He suggested some tips which helped me sharpen the taste of the sinful beverage. Compared to other chocolate mix, Ghirardelli had a very creamy and smooth texture. So we both prefer this taste for out Iced Cocoa drinks. End result was pretty impressive!!! I recommend this drink to anyone who is a chocoholic and Ghirardelli afficionado...!!

Serves: 2 individuals

Milk - 2 Cup (preferably cold milk)
Ghirardelli Chocolate Hot Cocoa - 2 teaspoon
Sugar - 5 teaspoon ~ as per taste
Instant Coffee powder - 1 teaspoon
Ice Cubes - 4

Thaw 1 Cup of milk in microwave with 1 teaspoon of Ghirardelli Chocolate Hot Cocoa. Give it a good stir after done. Blend the microwaved milk with cold milk alongwith coffee powder, sugar and ice cubes. Serve with crackers or you could have it plain as a evening beverage.

Note: I used Ghirardelli Premium Hot Cocoa which you get at any departmental store/grocery store in US. If not available, one can use regular hot chocolate powders. One could also add a dash of cinnamon for that extra zing and punch.
