Old Fashioned Hot Chocolate

posted in: Winter | 0

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.
