Hot Chocolate

The Recipe

1/4 water
3 Tbsp. Cocoa- preferably Dutch process, but that Hershey's will do just fine
2 Tbsp. sugar, or more if you prefer
2 cups milk
1 tsp. vanilla
handful of mini-marshmallows, opt.
liquer of your choice, opt.

Combine water, cocoa and sugar in saucepan and whisk until it comes just up to a boil. Add the milk and continue to whisk until almost boiling, but not quite. When first bubbles begin to appear, remove from heat and stir in the vanilla. Ladle over marshmallows into two large mugs.

Drink when it snows.

The Story

We always have hot chocolate and popcorn when it snows.

This tastes much better than that powder stuff, and takes almost as long to make. It's not very sweet, so if you like it sweeter add more sugar- but remember, those marshmallows will melt.
