Hot Mockolate: Dairy-Free Chocolate-Free Hot Chocolate

1 cup water
4 ounces carob chips
1/3 cup white sugar
3 cups rice milk
½ t. vanilla
1. In a small saucepan over low heat, whisk together the water and carob, stirring occasionally until the chocolate is melted and the mixture is consistent. Add the sugar, stirring well to dissolve. Turn up the heat to medium, bringing the liquid just below the boiling point, stirring constantly, for about 2 minutes. Gradually add the rice milk and vanilla, stirring well until incorporated. Cook until desired temperature and consistency.

Notes: This was EXCELLENT, my kids first taste of Christmas morning hot chocolate. I even liked it in my coffee. I forgot the vanilla but we didn't miss it. We will be having this treat again for sure!
