Recipe Share Wednesday: Homemade Hot Chocolate

So…yesterday was crazy as we wait ALL DAY LONG for snow that finally got here after dark! I didn’t post as I was out fighting folks for loaves of bread and milk. Just kidding…just kidding. I let Eric do that.

We get pretty excited about snow around here. Last night the “kids” played in it and I made them some hot chocolate when they came back in. Made another pot (batch?) of it today. Here’s the recipe. Right off the cocoa can! With one modification…I used one cup of half and half in place of one of the cups of milk.

1/2 cup sugar
1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
dash salt
1/3 cup hot water
3 cups whole milk
1 cup half and half
3/4 teaspoon vanilla extract

Mix sugar, cocoa and salt in saucepan; stir in hot water. Cook and stir over medium heat until mixture boils; boil and stir 2 minutes more. Stir in the milk and heat. DO NOT BOIL. Remove from heat; add vanilla. Top with whipped cream or marshmallows if you like.
