OK – It’s really cold!
Who wants to make old-fashioned #homemade hot chocolate?
Here’s my wife’s recipe for her yummy hot chocolate:
- 1/2 cup sugar
- 1/3 cup cocoa
- dash of salt
- 1 1/2 cups water
- 4 cups milk
- 1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
Mix sugar, cocoa and salt in a saucepan. Gradually stir in water. Heat to boiling, stirring constantly, and boil for a couple of minutes. Gradually stir in the milk. Heat to almost boiling but do not boil. Stir in the vanilla.
Beat with a hand beater before serving.
If a sweet drink is desired, stir in another teaspoon of sugar after it has been poured into a cup.
